As a mother of three incredible children and solicitor of nine years, I made the decision to follow a life-long passion for health, wellness and fitness, and pursue a career as a personal trainer.
Studying part-time with OriGym to fit around family and work, I achieved my Level 2 Fitness Instructor and Level 3 Personal Training qualifications. I found OriGym’s courses to be fantastically structured and well organised, and my tutor Andy Tsang was brilliant - he taught me so much!
After graduating I set out to create a small health and fitness business with the sole purpose of empowering women, both physically and mentally. My business has now been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Breakthrough Personal Trainer’ category at Northern Ireland’s Health & Fitness Awards 2019 - I am so proud and thrilled that my business and its focus on women’s physical and mental health has been recognised at such an early stage of its existence!

I am very grateful to OriGym for giving me such a great foundation to launch my business from!
