Date joined: May 2014

Professional background: Having graduated with a BSc degree in Psychology in 2010 from the University of Manchester, I pursued a career in water polo for a number of years, before following my passion to change lives together through sport and physical activity. With my psychology background, I have always been passionate about the importance of data, insight and evaluation to understand what works, then how to use the learning to adapt, which led to the development of the evidence and evaluation team within Greater Manchester Moving in 2016.

Fun fact: I can speak over 5 words of Hungarian after living there to play water polo for 8 months.
