Niamh has been involved with horses her entire life. She grew up in a family deeply invested in horse racing, and spent most of her childhood at racetracks or around young horses about to be in training. She went on to do competitive eventing, competing in the Pony Club National Championships back in her home country of England.
She came to the United States to study for an Undergraduate degree in Psychology on a soccer scholarship at Lipscomb University. During her years as a student-athlete she was named: Defensive Player of the Year; 3x First Team All Conference; All-Southeast Region Team, and 2x Academic All-Conference. She also captained the Lady Bisons during their most successful Division 1 season in program history.
Following her Undergraduate graduation, she began pursuing a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Lipscomb. She hopes to pursue licensure as an LPC/MHSP following her graduation from the program in December 2019.
Niamh enjoys being outdoors, working out, good crime dramas, and watching her favorite soccer team Manchester United. She lives in Nashville, TN but calls Wiltshire, England (where her 5 beloved horses are) home.
