I have been an active fell runner and mountain marathon competitor for over a decade, winning several event categories over the years. I am now the Director and a running guide for Girls on Hills Ltd in Glencoe, Scotland. We offer guided trail/fell running in the Scottish Highlands, and navigation courses – specifically for women,
I am a Summer ML, Rock Climbing Instructor and Fell Running Association trail running guide (FlirF accredited). This year I was part of the UK Skyrunning Team (VK) for the World Championships in Glencoe. I came 6th in the Scafell Skyrace and 12th in the Goretex Transalpine Run (260km/16,000m mountain race across the Alps from Germany to Italy (mixed category). Last year I competed in the Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace just 10months after the birth of my second child (I am mother two two toddlers). In this respect i’m probably not your ‘average’ female brand ambassador. Through girls on Hills I support and encourage women of all ages, stages of life and levels of ability to embrace explore the hills, equipping them with the confidence and skills necessary to become independent in the mountain environment.
I am also an experienced rock-climber, mountaineer and skier, and have been a serving mountain rescue team member for over 5 years. In my ‘spare time’ I am a freelance outdoor/adventure writer.
