First aid

Mini Bio – Settled now in Cumbria, England. The Lake District National Park is a place I love for work and play. Originally from Devon and brought up in Wiltshire I also spent time living in the Scottish Highlands, working for Outward Bound Loch Eil. So, Outdoor Education and personal development work is within my very core.

Over my career I have worked with both adults and young people helping folks learn and grow in some amazing places; from Nepal and Peru to Norway and Poland.  In recent years I have guided a lot in Northern England and love enabling guests to get the very most out of their holiday.

To balance my guiding I am also in the process of writing a novel and renovating my home – and on the odd spare moment I might just be found swimming in a lake or paddling my kayak.

Experience

My office has been the great outdoors for twenty-five years. My background is within personal and professional development both in the UK and abroad – working with adults and children – both on land, water and longer expeditions.

I now love guiding and facilitating amazing holidays for guests to enjoy.

Biggest Adventure

I’m terms of outdoor adventures – probably a Sea Kayak trip From Fort William to the Isle of Skye – we were beset with hideous weather – but made it from Loch Eil to Oban, up the sound of Mull, around a very choppy Ardamurchan and then along to Arisaig – a brief trip South due to a family bereavement before a final push to the Skye Bridge. It was initially intended as an even bigger trip (around NW Scotland) but sometimes life just has other ideas – I’m over the disappointment now – and can celebrate how far we did paddle. 😊The biggest adventure of all . . . Life!!!
