Born in London, England. I earned a BSc in Sports Studies and Health Studies and an MA in Sport, Culture and Development from Roehampton University London. Following graduation, I was a college lecturer in the ‘International Politics of Sport’ at my alma mater. As a player I won a British Universities National Championship with Roehampton University London and played at a semi-professional level for more than a decade.

I held coaching positions with both Fulham FC and Wimbledon FC youth academies in England, before moving my coaching career to the US in 2001. After working in various capacities within youth soccer, I took the Women’s Assistant Coach position at D1 Rider University. I spent 10 successful years at Rider, helping turn around a previously losing program. During this period the Lady Broncs made 9 appearances in the MAAC playoffs, with 4 semi-final appearances, and in 2014 their first conference championship in program history. Earning a berth in the NCAA National Tournament.

I am an avid student of the game and holds a USSF ‘A’ License and an Advanced National Diploma. I also work for US Soccer as a Youth National Team Scout. I have extensive experience of the college soccer landscape and understand the inner workings of the recruiting process. I look forward to helping future young athletes on their journey.
