When away from work, what do you enjoy doing?

I am passionate about fencing – not the fence making kind, but rather it is learning the skills of attacking and defending with one of three blades. The sport has been my passion for four years and the reason for this has developed over that time.

It began with a conversation at a stand in freshers week and the next day I was signing up to the fencing club. Combined with my enthusiasm for sport it seemed exciting, the people were friendly and I enjoy trying new things. I had my first competition three months later and came eighth, one year later I was awarded the gold medal at a novice competition in Warwick. Half way through university I went onto compete at a competition in Paris.

After coming eighth I knew I wanted to share my skills and share my passion with the next generation of fencers. I applied and was accepted as a fencing instructor at a camp in America for three months.

When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was younger I wanted to be an Egyptian archaeologist. I was a bit of a tomboy, always digging around in the mud.

What is your favourite book or movie?

If you take anything away from my bio (and you like detective books) then give Karen Slaughter’s 'The Kept Woman'a try.

Describe an interesting fact about yourself?

I have had 25 guinea pigs at one time.
