The highlight of my international career is probably my Gold medal from the WOC relay in 2008 and I have now competed in 13 WOCs. I have been pleased over many years of top level orienteering to have given advice and guidance to help many of the GB team members. I started out with Mole Valley OC and the South-East Junior Squad, and have since run in UK with Octavian Droobers and Sheffield University. I now live in Dunblane and run with Forth Valley. I have had a wide range of experience with international clubs: I won Swedish Relays Champs with Södertälje-Nykvarn in 2012, and subsequently became coach for IFK Moras OK. Now I run with the Finnish Club Kalevan Rasti who have had tremendous success over a number of years winning Tiomila and Jukola.

I have 13 Senior British Champs Gold medals and competed for the British team at the Mountain Running World Champs. I have drawn orienteering maps since leaving university, and I now work as an Events Manager for Ourea Events.

Clubs: Forth Valley Orienteers (Scottish OA) and Kalevan Rasti (Finland)
