Naomi joined Women in Sport in February 2024 as an Insight Manager, where she works to help drive the charity’s innovative and powerful Insight work. Over the last eight years Naomi has developed her skills as a mixed-methods researcher, contributing to insight work across the public and private sectors.
As a bookish teen with a very sporty brother, Naomi didn’t truly feel sport was something for her whilst growing up. That started to change when she was encouraged to sign up for half marathon by a university friend. Despite finding it incredibly tough, completing the run had a huge impact on her sense of self and marked a step into a new relationship with sport.
Since then, she has been part of the running community WMN Run, made her way around trail marathons, and even taken on a solo run of the beautiful West Highland Way in Scotland. She is also a keen climber, who loves the physicality of bouldering and is developing her rope climbing skills.
Naomi is passionate about the transformative impact sport can have on the lives of women and girls. She is driven to challenge the deeply intrenched inequality that still exists for women and girls in sport.
