I started training in taekwondo in January 2009 and joined Mr McMillan’s club in September 2009.  I had previously trained in karate when I was younger and reached brown belt but lost interest with the non-contact style I was practicing.  It wasn’t until I was on work placement in Finland, as part of my university degree, that I got introduced to taekwondo.  Once back in Scotland I joined Mr McMillan’s club and I’ve not looked back since.

I love sparring and competing and I am currently a member of the Scotland ladies team.  I was unbeaten at colour belt winning Scottish, English, Welsh, British, US and World titles.  My achievements at black belt include:

         World silver medallist 2013

         European Champion 2014 & 2012

         British Champion 2014 & 2013

         Represented both GB and Scotland Ladies National Teams

My aims for the future? World domination….

As well as my own training I really enjoy teaching others and I instruct at the Glasgow Pollok club as well as helping out in the Kilmarnock and Glasgow West End clubs when I can.
