THE PERSON OUTSIDE OF WORK
SPORTS & EXERCISE (Physical well-being)
I’m a Runner and Tri Athlete. I love and compete in 3 main disciplines. Running, Swimming and Cycling. I make sure I fit in training 5- 6 times a week. I’m affiliated with DC Triathlon, Eryri Harriers and Welsh Athetics. This personal passion has enriched my own personal development and mind set.
I’m known as the person who supports people to “get things done” in a managed, ordered and brave way. I have advised, been a consultant and supported people and organisations on how to implement strategies and frameworks that ensure measured and sustainable results in the field of:
- Change Management
- Business and/or Organisational Development
- People and Leadership Development – including Women in Leadership
- Personal Development
Organisations include: NAEL, Unison, CHC, School Leaders and many others.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?
I’m a mother of 2 young children and wife. They will always be my main priority and I am a passionate champion of flexible working in order to dedicate as much time and attention as possible this major part of my life. As a family we love hikiking and exploring our local area – Eryri!
I’m also a lifelong student. I always look for opportunities to expand my own learning. I know, this will be a life-long journey that will never end, and I hope to encourage this in others
I have a fear of being bored! Therefore – I’m constantly on the go! Triathlon is one of my big passions – I will talk about running for hours! The workouts, shoes, races, communities. Beware!
Having a good balance and combining and staying dedicated to my family, sport, studies and a little fun is very important to me.
FAVOURITE BOOK & WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?
I love reading. Any type of book really, but this year I have been drawn to many books addressing Womens Issues in politics, workplaces and in sport. Some of the best books I’ve read this year – Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez and Becoming by Michelle Obama, Beyond Limits by Lowri Morgan. Too many to list!
FAVOURITE FOOD & WHY ?
I love Asian foods. Miso, curries, soups. I also love sweet treats and anything with Peanut Butter.
FAVOURITE BAND / SINGER ?
I’m a closeted Swifty (don’t tell anyone!) and a big Dido fan. Always go back to Dido
