About Me

 My name is Nicole, I love to travel and have used any opportunity I can to go exploring outdoors; whether thats short weekend trips or multi-destination adventures. Rather than simply ticking places off the bucket list or snapping a picture. I enjoy exploring and focus on having fun experiences or a bit of escapism. I have been fortunate enough to combine my career with travel. I used to be an outdoor instructor (kayaking, canoeing, climbing and navigation) and have worked extensively in sports coaching, fitness and sports science in various locations around the world. 

I have a keen interest in adventure travel. I regularly head to lakes spending the day in a kayak or canoe; or you might find me on the fells hiking and climbing crags.

I have previously worked with WomenClimb as part of their editorial, social media and support team promoting the access, inclusion of women in the outdoors. I am currently lecturing at a university in sports science and research adventure sports, but have availability to travel.

I am a lecturer by day but a Nomad at heart.
