My Sports Science undergraduate motivated me to move from Colombia to the UK back in 2015. Throughout my time in Nottingham, I qualified as a Coach in multiple sports, Personal Trainer and GP referral. I have worked for several years in elite sports including clubs like Norwich City FC and Nova Centurion SC. Alongside being a Researcher, I am a Health and Exercise Consultant, helping a range of people from clinical population to elite athlete achieve their health and performance goals.

I have a strong interest in exercise physiology and using it as a medicine. This includes my current work in Exercise Oncology looking at how exercise can modulate cancer survival outcomes and quality of life. I am also passionate about elite sporting performance. This not only includes enhancing sporting performance but also research around female athlete physiology and addressing the gender gap in sport.
