I have always loved going to the hills. Growing up, it was the Mournes. In my early 20's as a student in Edinburgh, I became increasingly obsessed with climbing. It didn't occur to me for some time that I would pursue a career as an instructor - I did it for myself, for the adventures, the friends and the craic.
At some point I took a notion to do Mountain Leader training. One thing led to another and in 2012 I found myself on the Instructor Development Scheme at Glenmore Lodge. Since then, I have been working as a freelance MIA and WML all over the country. Integrating my lifestyle and my job has been as rewarding as I hoped it would be, and I'm still as passionate about it as ever.
