I have grown up by the sea and dreamt of being a mermaid since watching the walk the plank/underwater scene in the film ‘HOOK’. I’ve always loved the outdoors but plonk me on a beach anywhere in the world and I’d be at my happiest! My husband (a surfer of 25 years) introduced me to surfing in 2011 and the ocean has been a part of my daily life ever since.
I am a mum of 2 little activists and the owner of a developing water sports centre on the seafront in my local town Cleethorpes. I am a SUP instructor and silversmith creating jewellery from sea glass that I’ve collected from various beaches over the years. Since I can remember I have picked up bits of marine little on my travels, but I’ve been seriously actioning larger beach cleans and promoting the work and campaigns of SAS since 2016.
I’m passionate about keeping beaches clean and educating our next generations through fun, inspiration and the outdoors.
