JOB ROLE: My role is to set up, run and monitor a range of health and wellbeing initiatives on behalf of the Leeds Rhinos Foundation, the aim of my work is to continually improve the health of our fans and local communities.

SPORTING BACKGROUND: My background in sport is centred around dance, particularly ballet, I started from a very young age and still take part in classes weekly. Day to day I enjoy being active and am a big fan of all sports in particular football, my time working for the L.R.Foundation has helped me in developing more of love of rugby league.

BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT: Graduating with a 2:1 degree in Public Health Nutrition and since gaining accredited Nutritionist status are my biggest personal achievements.

ROLE MODEL: My mum is my biggest role model.

SPORTING ROLE MODEL: Sporting wise Nicola Adams and her journey to success is motivating as well as Jessica Ennis-Hill, both are big inspirations especially in the way they lead the forefront for women in sport - the fact they are both Yorkshire girls is also a great thing!

SPORTING MOMENT: My greatest sporting moment personally would be gaining place at the Northern Ballet Company after numerous auditions back when I was considering a career in professional dance. In terms of professional sport I grew up as a Manchester United fan so watching them win the treble in 1998-99 was my first memory of a real momentous sporting moment!
