I started training with SBG Tullamore just over a year ago. I fell in love with the gym and martial arts. I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing and MMA. In January 2018, I started the Wimp 2 Warrior programme with SBG Tullamore. That consisted of 22 weeks training at 6.30am every morning and at the end of the 22 weeks, I had my first cage fight which I won. Wimp 2 Warrior was a fantastic experience- I made some great friends and gained so much confidence.
Career wise, I used to work as a manager in the hospitality industry until early 2018, when I began to work at SBG Tullamore. I love working at the gym as I get to train full time and meet new people. I had my second amateur MMA bout in March 2019 and I lost my match. So I am 1-1 in my MMA Career. Over the next few years I would like to compete more in Brazilian Jitsu and in amateur MMA. I would also love to fight more in K1 and gain as much experience in the cage as possible.
I work at the front desk in the gym and I am head coach to the Spider monkeys in our Growing Gorillas Programme on Mondays and Wednesdays.
I received my blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jistu from our Head Coach Kieran Davern in September 2019.
Funny fact about myself – I would challenge man, woman or child to beat me in a game of Guitar Hero!
