Passion. Persistence. Perseverance.
I have never really been a girly girl. When I say that, I don’t mean I’m not feminine, I am, but I like to get stuck into building things and getting my hands dirty. I love to see how things work and how they are made. As a child I would build houses and cars with Lego and watch my Dad fix things around the house, studying exactly what he was doing. Throughout my adult life, I helped rebuild engines in my kitchen, build cars, do engine conversions in my garage, and even zinc plated car parts in my conservatory! I am a professional musician and educator by day and I love it but I’ve always had a desire to be more involved with cars and motorsport.
In my 20s, I bought a car that would change my life; an S1 Lotus Elise. Through this car I made friends with a great number of like-minded people, and through them I developed a love for being on track and competitive motorsport. I would spectate at trackdays, hillclimbs and sprints, often volunteering as a marshall at these events, but deep down I really wanted to be on track driving.
Fast forward a number of years and after returning from some time living and working in the Middle East, I decided to do just that. With the support of my family and friends (both in and out of competitive motorsport) I am following those dreams and grabbing this opportunity with both hands.
Season 2019 will see me racing in the Scottish Fiesta ST Challenge, a new Championship introduced by the Scottish Motor Racing Club aimed to make circuit racing more accessible.
I want to sincerely thank all of my sponsors and partners. Their generosity and expertise allows me to keep moving forward to improve my performance and achieve my goals. Please take a moment to learn about my valued supporters below.

My friend and one of my favourite people, Daryl at Carbon Strength has been tasked with turning me into a racing snake! He has a wealth of encouragement, advice and knowledge of all things racing and fitness related. He works me hard, trying to almost kill me at every single session, but I still genuinely look forward to them and leave with a massive smile on my face, looking forward to the next one again. He helps me with not only my fitness and strength, but my health, diet and mental wellbeing.
