BASI Trainer and Assessor
BA French Literature
TEFL English Language Teacher

Born in Glasgow my love of the mountains began in the 80’s whilst at Stirling Uni. but was mainly restricted to walking up them till I put on some planks. Soon I was working as a resort rep in Val d’Isère. I gained my BASI Diploma in four years whilst teaching in Italy and was selected as a BASI Trainer in 2003. I have lived in Courchevel since 2000 working mainly with Skivolution, running performance courses, Gap Year programmes and regular ski school. I am proud to say all my full-time trainees were successful last year! In summer I work as a freelance project manager and look after our 5yr old son.
Previous lives: Immigration Officer, Pontins Lifeguard.
