In 1994 a friend invited me to join her on the Annapurna Sanctuary trek in Nepal. This was the first time I had done any serious walking. 5 years later I was back in Annapurna but this time as a guide. I worked for 5 years with Exodus leading walking holidays in Italy, Spain, Austria, Morocco and Nepal. I now live near the Peak District and enjoy sharing my love of walking with others. I have also been the office manager at WalkingWomen for the last 6 years and enjoy putting faces to familiar names when I am guiding.
