Summary

Fiona gained her PhD. at Cambridge University, in the UK. Following her PhD she went to TSRI, La Jolla USA, to research synaptic plasticity for 6 years. With a thorough understanding in the body's physiology and also with her speciality in neurophysiology this enables her to have a more scientific approach to the coaching of cycling and triathlon.

Fiona started skiing at 18 months, enjoying downhill ski racing for a number of years. She has been involved in one sporting activity or other since then. As well as being a competitive county runner Fiona has excelled in triathlon and duathlon. She now concentrates on longer distance events and has raced in several Half-Ironman and Ironman events.
