I grew up in a small village in Derbyshire and as a young child found a passion for swimming which led to me representing both Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire at a national level for several years as a teenager. After leaving school I knew I wanted to see the world so decided to pursue a career in the travel industry, eventually spending over 20 years working in Revenue Management for various companies.
In 2008 I took a 3 month career break and travelled round the world starting in New England, USA and finishing in Dubai, UAE. In 2015 I met my husband and moved to Doncaster, and more recently we have bought a 250 year old converted stone windmill which we are renovating ourselves. Any free time I have from renovations I enjoy spending time exploring the local countryside with my husband and dog, and taking holidays & weekends away.
