Originally from the Midlands, I have lived in London for 30 years. I came here to study Accountancy with Ernst and Young following 3 years at Leeds University where I did a Maths degree.
I now live in New Malden with my three boys Will 19, Josh 18 and Owen 15 years.
I’ve always enjoyed keeping active and have trained in a gym since I was 18.
Never one for aerobics classes I opted for resistance training, along with netball.
Over recent years I have taken part in several triathlons including the Olympic Distance London Triathlon which I completed in just under 3 hours. I have also done the Run to the Beat Half Marathon and the Hampton Court to Kingston Swim.
In May 2017 I took part in a Three Peaks Alps Challenge. From Chamonix we travelled out each day to tackle some of the highest trekking peaks in the alps – one in France, one in Switzerland and one in Italy.
I love spending active holidays with my boys, including skiing in Austria and Slovenia, and walking.
We have trekked in the Atlas Mountains, where we tackled Mount Toubkal at 4200m (which was very cold at the top) enjoyed canyoning in Slovenia and the Lake District, completed the Via Ferrata Extreme and trekked up Scafell Pike, Hellvellyn and Snowden.
We got to beautiful Peru in 2019 before the global Covid pandemic, where we Quad Biked, White Water Rafted and walked the Inca Trail.
This summer we are enjoying the UK with visits to North Wales and Chichester, and will try our hand at sailing!
Next year Tanzania is on the cards.
