What do you do at ART Health Solutions?

My role at ART Health is varied and allows me to utilise my skills and expertise in the delivery of our workplace science.  In addition to the collection, analysis and reporting of data from a plethora of sources, I play a key role in the communication of findings at both the individual and group level.  This part of my role gives me great pleasure in that I can convey our data on several different levels and then provide sustainable and highly impactful interventions to benefit our clients.

In the more technical side of my job, I design and implement experiments that enable our clients to receive insightful data around employee health & performance, the impact of the environment and office configuration on productivity, and importantly how the workplace experience provided impacts employee satisfaction with their employers.

What’s your background?

From a young age my life has revolved around cycling, which led me to undertake a degree in Sports Coaching and Performance in Waterford I.T., Ireland. During those years I spent a lot of time coaching a wide variety of athletes, which included a year spent at the UCI World Cycling Centre in Switzerland, working alongside world class cyclists and coaches. I subsequently decided to further my studies in the area of sport science. I moved to England to start my postgraduate degree in Sport Physiology at the University of Chester, which I completed in 2019. After joining the ART team, I wanted to broaden my knowledge and understanding of human health and wellness within the working environment, so I decided to embark in becoming a WELL AP, a certification which I achieved in 2021.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?

I spend a lot of my spare time in coffee shops or socialising over sushi. I also enjoy riding my bike and seeing new places.
