When I lived and worked in London in my twenties and thirties, I really didn't appreciate how wonderful it is.
It's only since I visited many other cities in Europe, Australia, the U.S. and beyond with my family that I realised that London truly is the most exciting and intriguing city in the world!
I started guiding with a specialist City of London course, and then moved onto the Blue Badge qualification. I've since also completed a City of Westminster course with distinction - and there's still so much to find out!
It's my aim to share with you the astonishing history, culture and diversity of our great capital. Every time I'm in London, I have a real frisson of excitement - let me share my enthusiasm and knowledge with you.
I've raised three children, and taught at secondary level, so young people don't faze me - and I've also taken local retirees for guided walks at a gentler pace.
Guiding gives me an outlet for my real love of literature and the visual arts which started with my degree in English and Art History from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's alma mater, St Andrews University.
Outside of guiding, I enjoy pottering about on boats, walking the countryside with my Sprollie dog and working on my garden - though my real home passion is cooking and entertaining friends over a glass or two of fine wine.
