Born in Nairobi Kenya while parents were teaching near Thika. Very active and have coached a number of sports. Travel is a key part of everything I do with my family. My son and daughter have traveled since they were 6 weeks old on journeys with myself and my husband. Prior to teaching I was a wine consultant, lifeguard and whatever else had to happen to get myself through university.
