I am an avid walker who is passionate about the countryside and being outdoors!  I discovered Nordic Walking when it was suggested by a friend, so I tried a taster session and was instantly hooked!  My love of walking came from 7 years living in New Zealand, where I explored every inch of the country.  Now I am fortunate to enjoy the beautiful countryside and coastline that Dorset has to offer.  I am also a primary school teacher and have utilised these skills to become NWUK instructor.  I am extremely keen to help others enjoy the outdoors, meet new people and maximise all the health and wellbeing benefits Nordic Walking can bring.
