I didn't learn to ski until I was 18 years old. 

I remember it well: the whole experience, in this challenging environment, with all the equipment, strange names for everything, fear of falling and hurting myself, and most of all I remember the unemphatic French ski instructors who just didn't seem to get what it was like to be a beginner.

Some how, that experience of learning to ski didn't put me off for life.  In fact, I went on to become an instructor myself.  And I promised myself, that I would never forget what it felt like to be a beginner, so I can support my students.

I am passionate about supporting those who are nervous about learning to ski, by supporting them in how they need to be supported.  I also work on further education, around Sport Psychology, to support women in how they need to learn, so that they can be the best skiers that they want to be, whether they are beginners or advanced skiers.  It doesn't matter.
