Always been an active and sporty kind of kid, it was no surprise that I enrolled into a sport college in the Netherlands and it was here that I was introduced to the great outdoors on a 2 month work placement in Northern Ireland. On return I quickly realised that for someone who loves the mountains, the Netherlands is just a tad to flat, and several years later in 2006 I started a job at the Outward Bound Ullswater in Cumbria to really focus on getting the right qualifications.This was my springboard to my now career working with young people and adults, either in the UK or further a field.
Place to Play
I am very lucky to still live on the edge of the Lake District National Park, so the mountains and lakes are right on my doorstep and easy to access to explore either on bike, foot or on a paddle board.
Within easy reach lies Scotland and many adventures have taken place in this stunning part of the UK and there is so much more to explore.

I absolutely LOVE liquorice, even the triple salty ones!
