Having only moved to Keswick in June 2015 and starting work at George Fisher in the July as Marketing Coordinator, I'm one of the newer members of staff, bearing in mind a lot of my colleagues have been here for 15-20 plus years! I’ve been made to feel very welcome since starting, by colleagues and customers alike.

You’ll usually find me behind a computer as opposed to on the shop floor, creating content for our new community website, sharing tales of adventures and new products on social media, making sure the instore George Fisher experience is available online for everyone to enjoy, if they can’t be in Keswick itself.

Growing up in Fort William and spending my summer holidays in The Alps, I've been in and around the outdoors a lot, enjoying different activities and trying new ones, my most recent being ski touring and I’ve been lucky enough to get in a few tours this winter. I still visit The Alps regularly on holidays, and after years of looking up at it, in 2013 I summited Mont Blanc! (In boots bought from George Fisher).

I’ve travelled a bit too. Spending a year in Canada travelling from the West Coast to the East, visiting all 10 of the provinces (with a cheeky 3 week trip to Chile). Working in the Okanagan Valley in the summer, enjoying weekends hiking, biking or on the beach and then Vancouver in the winter, with weekends spent skiing or snowboarding at Whistler and Grouse Mountain.

In 2014 I spent 6 months in Africa, travelling overland around Kenya, through Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia to South Africa. I enjoyed lots of different activities, biking, canoeing and lots of hiking, and I went on 7 safaris in all and was lucky enough to see the Big Five. It was one of the most amazing travel experiences!
