Philippa has always had a love of all sport, any sport, but by her own admission she never thought she would become an international athlete. From a young age her eyes were firmly set instead on developing her business career.
With both parents self-employed, entrepreneurialism was in her blood; her father ran a successful building company at which Philippa loved to help out. She realised a gap in the market for a building company that could supply an all-female work force and in 2007 launched her own company ‘Female Building and Interiors’.
Philippa’s business career did not stop at the building site as she went on to a TV career with Channel 4 on The Renovation Game and become one of the first female builders on national TV.
Alongside developing a successful company Phillipa’s love of rugby also grew and through years of hard work, juggling her own company commitments and her TV career she went on to be internationally capped for Wales at Rugby Union, Rugby 7’s and Touch Rugby.
