My first career was as a health professional in the NHS, working as a Community Dietitian specializing in health promotion.  I started volunteering at Forest Schools in 2004 and completed my Level 3 Forest School Leader training with Archimedes in 2006. 

In 2010 I left the NHS, so I could dedicate myself to working outdoors with children.   I set up as a sole trader under the name Into the Wild Wood. 

In 2020 I became an Approved Practitioner with the Therapeutic Forest CIC, after completing further training.
