As a keen adventurer, mother of two with a canine companion. I love all things outdoors. Originally from Aberdeen, I left the “big city” to become a ski guide in Verbier, Switzerland. In Verbier. I then met a family from New Zealand who said “you should come and ski for our winter in the Southern Hemisphere”.... So I did, and then proceeded to work in exchange for food and accommodation throughout various incredible locations, in hostels, motels, farms and smallholdings - you name it, I did it.
During my travels I often ended up helping businesses with their overall marketing plans, re-structuring their business models and making them more “user friendly” for both customers and internal staff.
6 months in Asia, two children, and a successful career in business development. I decided it was time for a change - to focus on what I really love, the outdoors (and dogs).
I set up a small dog walking company, which lately offered home boarding. After my health deteriorated and I ended up in a wheelchair for 6 months, I had to rethink my career options. To ensure I could still work when my legs don’t.
I love helping and supporting small businesses, so I set up a small business to run alongside my dog walking business. Fast forward a few years, and I have helped multiple clients with their marketing strategies, planning, company structures and social presence and have made some great friends along the way - and walked a lot of dogs.
I love to chat and feel the best way to help is to speak to everyone around you. When I was presented with the opportunity to join Scottish Hostels, it felt like the perfect fit, as if all my life and work experience could be combined into one role.
I am incredibly excited to join the team and am really looking forward to seeing how things progress in the future.
