What have you been doing the last 5 years?
How long have you got?!...Having left banking, I returned to snowsport in the form of a Alpine Ski Race Guide for a visually impaired athlete on the Para Snowsport GB Team. This reignited my passion for everything snowbound and inspired me to use my previous skills to help athletes find funding, in the shape of my charity Giving For Sport.
Having experienced what it is like to be on the CDC team in Bormio 2018, I found CDC a great match for my enthusiasm and passion. Since then I have been helping out as much as I can - from growing the UK based skills development programme to redeveloping the website and developing our new CDC App.
