“do you find time for adventure? Going on adventures builds confidence, expands your horizons & reconnects us with the natural world”

 

It was going on an adventure that completely turned my life around. No longer was I the un-happy and confused woman with low self-esteem. I was an adventurer, capable of achieving anything I set my mind to.

Wanting others to experience the power of adventure, and noticing a real lack of women in the outdoors, I launched Love Her Wild – a women’s adventure community, now with over 6,500 members. When I’m not busy running the community and its all-female expeditions, you can find me blogging, delivering inspirational talks or leading expeditions.

My adventures include hiking 1000km the length of Israel, kayaking the width of the UK against plastic pollution and kick-scooting (yep you read that right!) the length of the USA. For my work supporting women in adventure I’ve been called one of the UK’s ‘top 30 inspirational entrepreneurs’ by Business Leader, have been awarded Legacy Maker on the San Miguel alternative rich list, won the Next Generation Award and was shortlisted for a national Diversity Award.
