I first arrived in Zermatt 10 years ago to complete my skiing exams. It’s a pretty special place, the kind that draws you back, and I was no exception as the following year I returned to work as a ski teacher.
I grew up in the Lake District and learnt to ski at the age of 8 on a family holiday to Switzerland. I feel so lucky to have been able to ski all over the world, including Canada, New Zealand and across Europe.
I decided to train to be a ski teacher after getting involved with Disability Snowsport UK, initially as a volunteer then later as an instructor.
Adaptive skiing is very close to my heart. I set up an adaptive program in a ski resort in Australia and am proud to have been involved with Summit Adaptive Program here in Zermatt.
My summer job for many years was as a Children’s Occupational Therapist, specialising with children with neurodevelopmental conditions such as Dsypraxia, Autism and ADHD.
I have recently qualified as a yoga teacher and plan to focus on that this summer.
