About:

Growing up in Carrbridge (Highlands of Scotland) I started skiing at the age of 7.

A family ski holiday to Italy confirmed my love of skiing. Fast forward to leaving school at 16, I went to work at my local ski area – Cairngorm Mountain, where I completed some of my instructor training (when we actually had snow!!). Over the last few seasons, I have worked in Verbier, St Anton and Bad Kleinkirchheim and am now looking forward to a season in Zermatt.

3 reasons to ski with me:
1. I like to make all my lessons fun and enjoyable. My aim for the lesson is for you to achieve your goals and to be happy, with a smile on your face!
2. I am very enthusiastic about skiing after all skiing is my passion and I want to share that with you!
3. Skiing should be enjoyable- I like to teach a mix of drills as well as showing you around the mountain so you can have the best time exploring afterwards!
