Jade is a foilist who occasionally picks up an epee. She started at age 10, competing internationally from age 13 and representing Great Britain on the cadet and junior circuits. Jade qualified for the cadet and junior European and World championships in Jerusalem and Plovdiv and won a team silver medal at the junior Commonwealth championships in Cape Town. She also has a couple of age group British Championship titles, represented Durham university 1st team, and won gold at the senior 5 nations with team England.
On her appointment to the Board of BF, Jade said, “I am eager and excited to utilise my professional skills, alongside my experience fencing domestically and internationally, to positively contribute to the Board and British Fencing’s strategy going forwards. This is a great opportunity for me to give a little back to a sport that has given me so much.”
