the Ordinary Adventurer


In 2016 I decided to hike 1000km the length of Israel - a challenge that would change me and my life for the better. I didn’t want the adventure to end so kept going. I've since crossed the Jordan desert, sailed the North Sea and kick-scooted the length of the USA.

Adventuring gave me a love for our natural world and am now campaigning for #EcoAdventuring. I also founded Love Her Wild, creating a supportive community and opportunities for ‘ordinary’ women like me to get out adventuring. The community now has over 5,500 members.
