Trained at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, I was the first woman to be awarded the Carmen Sword from HRH Princess Royal, for outstanding performance as a young officer. I am a former international athlete, Captaining Wales in lacrosse and competing across three World Cups. I was awarded the ‘Most Valuable Player in Europe’ at the 1997 Championships.
As a keynote speaker, consultant and coach, I have 20 years international experience in leadership and team performance, across the military, business and elite sport sectors. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership and Management. My work includes board level strategy facilitation, executive coaching with global brands and elite sports team development.
I am an Ambassador for the Charity ‘Help for Heroes’, supporting wounded, injured and sick British Armed Forces Veterans. I was proud to be part of the BBC TV documentary ‘Gareth Malone and the Invictus Games Choir’, and collaborated with HRH Prince Harry and Warner Brothers in the promotion of ‘Dunkirk’, the movie. Having suffered post-traumatic stress as a result of my military service, I campaign to promote better mental health awareness in organisations today.
