I was born ‘darn sarf’ but moved to Yorkshire at the tender age of 6. My Mum had been diagnosed with a brain tumour and as her parents were in Doncaster it seemed appropriate for us all to move closer to them. She died soon after. This early trauma came back to haunt me years later in the form of depression and I battled with the eating order bulimia throughout my 20’s. A turn of events lead me into the fitness industry at the age of 28 where I have been ever since, although I have only been totally self employed since 2010, before that I had other jobs as well as my fitness stuff. Now I am the Director of two fitness businesses – Isle Lose It Fitness Camps and Taylored To Fitness, both of which I am pleased to say are doing well. My interest lies in HEALTH rather than weight loss and I absolutely LOVE my job.
I also absolutely LOVE the two men in my life, my teenage sons Jordan and Mitchel. As a single parent it can be tough sometimes juggling work and home but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I had the privilege of knowing Anna personally. She was a beautiful, vibrant, intelligent and very fit lady who I had the utmost respect for.
What happened to Anna touched me and the whole community incredibly deeply and when Paul asked me to become part of Team Verrico it was a no brainer.
Everyone has a reason to give.
