My name is Nicola. I am a mum to four wonderful boys. I returned to college at the age of 30 and received a 1.1 Bachelors Degree of Nursing Sciences from the National University of Ireland. After graduating from college I worked on a busy surgical ward in Portiuncula Hospital. Although I loved nursing, my own physical health deteriorated. This is when my passion for exercise and looking after my own health really came into play. I quit my job as a nurse and became fully involved in our family run business, HQ Gym, Tuam.
