Originally from the Midlands, I have lived in London for 29 years. I came down 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 teenage boys Will 18, Josh 16 and Owen 14 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 my base in Chamonix I 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 and walking.
We have trekked in the Atlas Mountains, where we tackled Mount Toubkal at 4200m, enjoyed canyoning in Slovenia and the Lake District, completed the Via Ferrata Extreme and trekked up Scafell Pike and Hellvellyn.
Last year we went to Peru, where we Quad Biked, White Water Rafted and walked the Inca Trail.
This summer Josh and are are doing an Alpine Skills weekend from Chamonix where we will learn climbing skills and may tempt us to try Mont Blanc another year !
