Having worked as a guide for a decade, I’ve has explored my homeland of New Zealand inside and out, and for the last few years have owned my own small inbound travel business, New Zealand Travel Designers.
I’m a bit of an adventure addict, and enjoy mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, snowboarding and most outdoor activities.
I’m passionate about mountain biking, and have been riding now for 20 years . I have a strong background of racing with six years on the national mountain bike circuit, placing third in the national championship, and have also experienced adventure racing. Now I’m a mum, I enjoy sharing skills in a gentle way with my “Wheel Woman” mountain bike coaching business, to help other woman feel empowered and happy on their bikes.
My career has included guiding in Ecuador, Peru and throughout Europe.
I enjoy sharing my passion for New Zealand with visitors and to hear how much our clients enjoy NZ.
I am lucky to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle with my family on a small piece of land in Mapua near Nelson.
