Previous Experience

Nicola studied Fashion Design and started out her career as a clothing designer for a local retailer and wholesaler. She worked for Liverpool Football Club for a couple of years in their Public Relations department, responding to fan mail and charitable requests. She also spent a number of years working in a variety of NHS organisations covering all types of admin and project tasks.

Prior to working for Yorkshire Sport Foundation, Nicola worked as a Designated Safeguarding Lead and Senior Mental Health Lead within secondary education. In that role, she really enjoyed partnership work and collaborating with colleagues within health, social care, community organisations and the police.

Keeping Active

Nicola lives in a lovely semi-rural part of Wakefield where she enjoys walking in the local countryside. She also enjoys hanging upside down at aerial yoga.
