Outside of work this she is a keen climber, runner, mountain biker, mountaineer, and snowboarder who is always looking for the next Adventure.

“We are all capable of so much more than we think, and without pushing ourselves to our limits we will never find out. I want to take on life and have Adventures to see just what we can achieve.”
