How did your career in the outdoors start?
I'm very new to the outdoor industry. Having been a secondary school teacher for 21 years, I only recently took the jump to move into this line of work. That's not to say I'm new to the outdoors.
As a child, I was always outside. My parents weren't the type that wrapped me in cotton wool. This allowed me to have small 'adventures' close to home and my love for this drove my desire to be outside, enjoying what nature has to offer. A feeling that has never dwindled.
Throughout my teaching career, I was involved in supporting and leading the DofE awards in schools. This allowed me to share my enjoyment with others and, when the opportunity came to move into the industry full time, I grabbed it and here I am.
