Areas of expertise: Commercial Analyst
I caught the travel bug at the end of my 20s, when I took time out to teach English as a volunteer in Malaysia and travel in Asia. That’s when I decided I really needed a way to squeeze more travel into my life, so I made the switch from working for big corporate retail brands to the much-more-rewarding adventure travel industry!
I’ve been lucky to enjoy some amazing travel experiences along the way and I very quickly got hooked on wilderness hiking after an adventure in the US National Parks. The more that I travelled overseas, the more I also started to appreciate and notice all the wonderful places we have right here on our doorsteps in the UK.
Despite never having done anything more than an occasional day walk, I talked my colleagues into hiking 100km with me on the South Downs Way for a charity challenge. From there, my love of walking continued to grow and it led me to discover Macs Adventure as a customer! So far I’ve walked three fabulous Macs trips on the Coast to Coast, Alta Via 1 Highlights and Slovenia’s Julian Alps.
There’s still so much of the world I want to explore, but I’ve just relocated to Glasgow to join Macs Adventure as a commercial analyst so I’m looking forward to many more great walking adventures to come!
