Hi my name is Michelle . I am first and foremost a mother to 2 beautiful children.
I spent 14 years in the horticulture industry which I absolutely loved, then my children came along and I became a full time mum.
After 9 years an opportunity arose for a career as a sports coach for primary schools which I’ve always had an interest In as I love my sport. I now work at a handful of school as well as for NOWs.
I have met and worked with hundreds of children over the past 5 years which has been rewarding, challenging and also very enjoyable as I get to meet lots of different characters.
Working with children has shown me that not only does exercise have many physical and social benefits but can also help improve a child’s mental health, giving them a better outlook on life by building confidence, managing anxiety and depression and increasing self esteem and cognitive skills.
I have seen first hand how through sports a child’s self esteem and confidence can grow which has been and continues to be extremely satisfying . This has ignited an interest and passion in not only physical but mental well-being which Is why I wanted to join the amazing NOWs team and make a difference.
