  • "I want to help you make more mindful decisions

    when you are exploring our planet"

    In 2014, I left my ‘dream job’ to make a difference. I kickstarted my new career by studying sustainability for business. As a reward to myself for handing in my dissertation, I went wild camping and canoeing on the Mississippi river.


    This trip was far more than an adventure holiday – it was a re-connection to nature.

    "I am now spend my time combining my passions –

    sustainability and adventure travel"

    I want to help you to be more mindful in what you do and to understand that individual decisions can make a positive impact on our planet.


    When I'm not travelling or writing, you'll find me organising all-women sailing trips exploring plastics and toxics in our ocean, walking my labradoodle Rory and creating net-positive artwork
