PURSUER OF DRAGONS

I have been working in outdoor education for over 17 years, and love that I still have so much to learn and discover.  I left school with no qualifications relevant to what  I wanted to do, but I could make a mean cheesy beano. I had a passion to save the world and over time discovered that to do this we need to educate the next generation on how marvellous our natural world is and how lucky we are to have it.

UTT began 11  years ago, with just me as a sole trader and thanks to all our amazing staff and customers has grown. We are a small charity, and have many plans still to come. 

I love my job – not all aspects the paperwork that seems to grow as we expand makes me sad, but the being outdoors with our amazing customers more than makes up for.  

My passion lies in dragonflies and damselflies and I am in love I have to admit with Otters and Badgers…in fact anything cute and cuddly. 

I am also happy to chat with others looking to start their own  outdoor business and share all the nonsense that is in my brain too!

Away from UTT, I spend time hanging out with my two dogs who are regular attendees at sessions. Don’t worry they are small (Cavalier King Charles, and they don’t always come along…I need peace too).
