I am currently a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, researching mental health in athletes. But prior to this role, I have coached both the Irish and British Canoe Slalom teams to an international level, and I was a member of the British Canoe Slalom team from 2008 until 2016, during which I had medalled at junior, under 23 and senior levels. My main passion in sport is finding ways to help individuals perform at their highest level through technical, physical, tactical and psychological development.
