I joined Visit Peak District & Derbyshire in 2018 as the ERDF Project Officer to provide business support to visitor economy businesses.

I am fortunate to have met and worked with such a diverse and fantastic group of businesses and have been part of so many exciting projects. A personal highlight has been the Accessible Champions project; our aim is to be the most accessible destination in the UK, so everyone can enjoy the beauty that the Peak District and Derbyshire has to offer.

Outside of work, I have two young children and we enjoy getting out and about in our spare time. We particularly enjoy riding our bikes on the Monsal Trail and paddling in the water at Padley Gorge. We also love spending time at Chatsworth and love to visit the Christmas markets to get the festive season underway with a mulled wine!
