I am dedicated to the pursuit of World Peace and the healing of the Earth. I passionately believe that we are making a difference by collecting thousands of Pledges for the Environment and Messages of Peace to carry to the far corners of our planet. This is in the long-held tradition of Himalayan prayer flags which are flown high to help bring peace and harmony to all beings.
I was educated at Bedales School in Southern England and have a degree in ecological science from Edinburgh University. My early working life was as a forester growing trees on a farm in Australia. I returned as a single mother devoted to my three boys and experienced a life-changing moment when I knew it was time to ‘work for the Earth’. Subsequently I have undertaken many events for charity. These have included hanging a ‘Save Antarctica from mining’ banner on the Old Man of Hoy, an intercontinental U.N. climb on the Eiger and a protest climb on Rio’s Sugar Loaf to stop street children being murdered. Also cycling, running, walking, climbing and parachuting as a fundraiser for environmental, animal and educational projects. I have been a climbing instructor and enjoy inspirational speaking, healing and more recently becoming a best selling author.
I have been featured in the national press as a 50 yr old living the life of a 20 yr old. Now in my 60s and blessed with four beautiful grandchildren, my claim to fame is as the first and only grandmother to race to the South Pole!
