I am a certified Clinical Exercise Physiologist by the American College of Sports Medicine, and a PhD student at Teesside University, Middlesbrough, UK. I am developing an intervention to be delivered in routine care to increase free-living physical activity levels in heart failure patients. I have developed a passion and an expert understanding of heart failure through my research and personal endeavours. My Masters degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology established that I wanted to make a positive change to people's lives that are living with chronic conditions - especially those with cardiovascular disease. I am an advocate for physical activity and I believe developing interventions to positively adapt people's behaviour/ lifestyle is rewarding. It would fulfil my passion to give those who are living with chronic conditions the chance to improve their quality of life and reduce symptomatic burden, in addition to assisting patients to achieve their goals.
