I started skiing at the age of 4 and have always been very passionate about it! During the summer I work as a sailing instructor and in the winter the skiing takes over. My work has taken me all over Europe and I have experience teaching people of all ages and abilities.
My home county is Northumberland; this is where my love for the mountains began. I studied Sports Science and Outdoor Adventure at the University of Wales. This has given me the ability to understand and apply human physiology, as well as have an understanding in psychology and the different ways in which people learn.
I love to see the people progress and overcome their fears. I have been a ski instructor for 8 years now and this is my fourth season with New Gen. I feel very lucky to be working in the mountains and can’t wait to get started this season in Morzine!!
