About Me


Experiencing natural environments


I am a warm, intelligent, active and adventurous woman and enjoy a good laugh, I like to see the humorous side of things. I enjoy spending time with my two young adult children (when their social calender permits) am very much a dog person and enjoy taking my Australian Shepherd down the river for some time out.


We are on this earth for such a short time, yet our decisions and actions can be extensive so I seek to minimise my impact and share learnings with others.


I enjoy hiking in some of the best and remote areas of eastern and southern Australia and NZ . I cross country ski in winter in the Victorian Alps and in another life I was a whitewater rafting guide, however I am now getting back into kayaking and plan to kayak around Hinchinbrook Island, raft a glacier fed river in the Yukon. I am joining an expedition to climb Mt Denali in Alaska in June, which will pit me mentally and physically in this extreme environment.

Music, Movies, and Books

For relaxation I am learning to play my acoustic guitar and have just finished writing a book. I also like to read Adventure books and Autobiographies.
