When I lost my father to Cancer over 20 years ago I was vividly aware of how he had commuted and worked all his life and dealt with his unhappiness in ways that ultimately ended his life at the age of 52. I vowed to incorporate what I am passionate about into my everyday and to help others to live a life of no regrets.

I am an identical twin from an Irish Catholic background who studied hard and became a Pharmacist. Life could have continued there… I was restless and it wasn’t enough. I studied Personal training, started to compete in Marathons and Triathlon and relocated to Melbourne, Australia where I lived for 11 years. I had two children there and relocated back to UK in 2013. Australia and competing there as a Professional Ironman (whilst full time working) taught me a lot. The Australian can do attitude is infectious and I studied further to become an ICF Accredited Advanced Practitioner in Life coaching in 2009.
