Born in Glasgow, Scotland, and after many moves around Scotland, England, Greece and Egypt, attended a boarding school for army officers daughters in Bath, England.

Trained as a radiographer, working for the NHS with a particular interest in equipment and vascular studies. Becoming a manger for radiology services, I studied for an MBA with the Open University. Retired in 2007 and immediately moved to Amorgos, buying and renovating an old village house. Living here has given me a better understanding of tourism and the effects on ecology and infrastructures.

Assist with some projects on the island – cleaning paths, beaches etc.

I have been involved with Yperia since coming to Amorgos and very much enjoy meeting the delegates from such varied countries and walks of life. In 2013 presented a paper - Ecology and Sustainable Development. Their place in Tourism Attended the Polish Tour Film Festival in Warsaw in 2012, presenting a short paper about the impact of the film The Big Blue.
