What have you been doing since leaving Exeter, and what are you doing now?

Since leaving Exeter I have worked for several organisations within Sports. Initially moving to London, I worked as a Communications and Event Manager for a Charity that provided Sport Opportunities across the UK, Ireland and South Africa. Following a successful 3 years at the charity, I moved to Australia where I worked for Tennis Australia as Player Operations Manager for Adelaide International, David Cup and ATP Cup for Australia summer series 2020, 2021 and 2022. Since returning to the UK in May 2022, I have returned to CMT Learning as Operations Manager and solely manage Nike Sports Camps UK as well as logistics for Chelsea FC Camps and Liverpool FC Camps.

Why did you choose this career? And what do you enjoy most about your work?

I fell into this career after working for CMT Learning throughout University. I started as a Camp Leader in 1st year, was promoted to Camp Manager and then moved into the Operations team. Having built a network and gained experience in operations/events I moved to London and started my career. Ultimately I enjoy putting on events for people to experience. I love seeing patrons happy, whether that’s tennis fans in Australia or players that attend our camps at CMT. I also enjoy the thrill of events, and seeing our team pull together to deliver something special.

Please tell us if you were a member of any societies, groups or sports clubs?

A member of the Ladies Football Club.

What did you enjoy most about your programme and what was the biggest highlight?

I really enjoyed my 3rd year and completing my dissertation. A real highlight was the 1st day of dissertation testing and seeing your research come to life.

What did you enjoy most about studying here?

Being with likeminded individuals and being part of Luke’s/EULFC.

Why did you choose to study at Exeter?

The reputation for Sport and Exercise Science, plus the day I visited was beautifully sunny.

What skills and experiences have been most useful for your career?

The connections and confidence I gained at university really powered my career.

What advice would you give to a current student who wishes to pursue your career?

Gain contacts and never burn bridges, you never know when you come across someone again!

What are your plans for the future?

Plans are to continue building CMT Learning. Would love new products, better margins and increase our female uptake.
