How and why i'm here...

My introduction to the outdoors came through the Ten Tors Challenge in 2006. I enjoyed it so much I kept coming back for 12 years to train the teams!

 

I'd spend my walks wondering about the landscapes and wildlife around me.  Then I discovered you could study environmental and landscape change at university and I was hooked!

After my MSc, I taught for a fantastic education charity using outdoor learning for social and emotional learning, often working with audiences new to the outdoors. I became an Accredited Practitioner for the Institute for Outdoor Learning, recognising my values and skills in designing and delivering outdoor experiences.

​I'm very grateful for how the outdoors has shaped me and aim to use that to benefit of others. I also strongly believe that understanding of, and connection to, the outdoors is key to protecting it for the future. This led me to create:

DISCOVER - let's learn about the places we visit and look from different perspectives as we explore.

YOUR - Outdoors is for everyone and we experience it in different ways. I value creating an adaptable experience everyone can enjoy.

OUTDOORS -  big, small, near, far, woodland, mountain, walking, talking...it all 'counts'.
