BSc. (Hons) Geography (Manchester Metropolitan University) PGCE Secondary Geography with QTS (Manchester Metropolitan University), Level 3 Forest School Practitioner,

Growing up in the Lake Distict moulded my passion for Geography and love for the outdoors. 

Before University I took a gap year working in a boarding school in Darwin, Australia which involved working with indigenous children in the classroom and boarding house. I then went on to study BSC Geography at Manchester Metropolitan University where, 3 years later, I returned to complete my PGCE Secondary Geography.

I have had quite a varied career histroy; when I was 17 I completed my National Pool Lifeguarding Qualification and became an ASA Level 1 swimming teacher which I have continued for the past 10 years. I also worked for a company which developed wind farms. It was a great experience and really developed my GIS skills, but I missed teaching and inspiring others. Realising that I wanted to combine my love for outdoors and education I undertook various environmental education voluntary roles with Natural England, Cumbria Wildlife Trust and Cheshire Wildlife Trust. Starting a career at Cranedale has confirmed my career path in environmental education and I look forward to what the future holds!

In my spare time I like to go kayaking, swimming and running, I regularly take part in Park Runs
