Emily is a fully qualified and insured Mountain Leader with over 10 years experience working in the outdoors, training people in navigation skills and leading groups on adventures. She is a registered National Navigation Award Provider.
She regularly works across the UK with youth groups, schools and colleges, as a fully qualified DofE Bronze, Silver and Gold Assessor and Instructor working in partnership with a variety of outdoor organisations.
Being outdoors is an addiction for Emily. Not only do she get cabin fever but she also find herself incredibly irritating to people around her who suffer from her twitching if she doesn’t get fresh air and a long romp over moorland or mountains regularly.
There is nothing like the feeling of the wind on your face (even if it comes with rain) to make you feel alive – it’s a perfect ‘reset button’ to the hazards of modern life.
She loves inspiring people to be outdoors and seeing them get hooked on the bug of adventure that only self-reliance in the elements can bring. She has been a proud Ordnance Survey GetOutside Champion since 2017, promoting ways to access the outdoors. If you want to check out the GetOutside website you can find it here.
I’ll never forget the girl from inner city Manchester who was excited to be in the mist on the top of the Langdale Pike’s in the Lake District, as she could ‘touch the sky’.
Emily is a regular hiker, fell runner and rock climber and always have some sort of adventure planned, no matter how big or small. She also loves to travel and experiencing new cultures, and so if you’re interested in what else she get up to you can check out her blog under the Adventures menu. Here you’ll find everything from Jungle expeditions in Cambodia to submitting 6000m peaks in Nepal and Bolivia.
When she’s not romping over the mountains or dreaming up the next overseas adventure, she works for a charity inspiring positive changes and providing second chances to people. She is also a Director on the board of Mountain Training UK and also the BMC’s charity Access and Conservation Trust, helping to shape the future of the two organisations.
She is also an Assistant Leader in her local Mountain Rescue Team and part of their rope rescue group.
