Visitor Service Manager

I started at Mountain Goat in 2015 and last year started  The Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) in the Visitor Economy at the University of Cumbria's Ambleside campus. I love working at Mountain Goat as no idea is thrown out without consideration and I have been lucky enough to organise the Windermere Christmas Markets for the past 4 years which has been an amazing working experience. 

When I'm not working I love hiking on the fells with my partner and son and visiting Scotland.

I enjoy meeting and chatting to people from all over the World. I regard it as a personal challenge to try to engage with every guest by finding out where they are from and what they are particularly interested in so that they get the most out of their day with Mountain Goat. I really enjoy sharing my “office”, the Lake District National Park, particularly the “out of the way places”; with everyone. It is the best office anyone could possibly have; whatever the season or weather! I am glad people like my humour!

 I have lived in the Lake District all my life and love calling it my home. I enjoy recommending and organising itineraries for domestic and international visitors to the aware and showing them areas they may not have otherwise visited. I love how diverse and fast paced my role is at Mountain Goat and everyday is different. Cumbria is steeped in history, beautiful natural landscape and we are blessed with not one but two UNESCO World Heritage Sites on our doorstep. 

When I'm not working I love getting out onto the fells and walking with my family & partner, if the weather allows or heading overseas to explore other parts of the world.

After qualifying as a teacher (art) I took a job with British Antarctic Survey. 2 ½ years there followed by 6 months fooling around South America knocked the teaching nonsense out of me. I came to Langdale for a weekend’s climbing in 1973 and stayed: 17 years as a National Trust Warden and 20 years as a wood carver and sculptor. Now in my 8th year with Mountain Goat I hope I can entertain and inform the people who come with us and pass on a little of my enthusiasm for the lumpy bits of Northern England.
 
Interests: Travel, Flight, India, Skiing, Baroque music, Amdram
 
Being a Mountain Goat guide beats working for a living and we get some nice toys to play with.
