Ski Instructor, Val d’Isère

My Story

I grew up in London and was lucky to learn how to ski at the age of 3 in France. I instantly fell in love with skiing and living in the mountains. At 12, I started ski racing and throughout school, I spent most winters attending an alpine racing academy in Bormio, Italy. I competed at a national and international level all over Europe and in Chile.

Whilst studying Economics at the University of Leeds, I simultaneously obtained my instructing, race coaching and adaptive qualifications. I began teaching in 2012 and have now completed seasons in Europe, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia. I absolutely love working within the snowsports industry and have been chasing winters, doing back-to-back seasons.

Outside of skiing, I enjoy hiking, practicing yoga and I am a keen traveller. I am very excited to be back in Verbier to ski with both my returning and new clients this season.
