''Adventure for me is the brunt of an Arctic storm, a blister the size of my fist and digging deep to unzip my tent at 4am. It is when I am in total isolation, sailing across oceans, hacking through jungles and sharing rare experiences with others. It is discovery and adapting to each unique situation. It will have me driven with adrenaline, overcome with fulfilment and eager to explore more.
An independent and remote farm upbringing taught me to live a practical, creative and wholesome lifestyle – connecting with the wild; to observe it, to nurture it and immerse myself in it…no matter what the weather! Adventure to me, is the personal desire to throw myself headfirst into extraordinary challenges; and experience moments so far removed from daily life, no matter how local, far-flung or hostile my location might be.
My philosophy is to lead a life off road and avoid the shackles of convention. By sharing my experiences, I wish to help promote women in adventure and to inspire others to chase heart-racing challenges and find the confidence to conquer!
Adventure is how I satisfy my need to step away from routine, to test my instincts and survival skills and explore my relationship with different environments. I always strive to gain a unique perspective from my expedition experiences by testing my durability and capability and think far beyond my own needs.
My love for adventure has lead me to pursue a career in the outdoors with the ultimate goal of becoming a Survival Consultant. My current position is, as part of a team, supporting TV and Film Crews in the worlds most wild, remote and hazardous places, by providing risk management, safety support and logistical expertise.
The outdoors is my job, my happy place, my passion.''
