Born in County Durham to an outdoor enthusiast father, my childhood was spent exploring the lakes, dales and moors of the North of England. My early ambition to be a teacher took me to Sunderland University where I studied Early Childhood and Educational Studies. Once graduating, my need to have fun and travel took me down south and eventually took me to a very small island in the Channel Islands, I gained a Highland husband on my adventures and this brought us back to his home in the Cairngorms.
Places to Play
The Lake District holds a very special place in my heart so whenever I get chance for a visit I head to Glenridding at the South end of Ullswater so many great walks there including the ascent of Helvellyn. I also find Borrowdale and Langdale valleys just breathtaking.

In one of my old jobs, I used to dress up as a clown and host children’s parties.
