Military Training Level 2 (Officer Training Corps)
I feel very much at home in Moscow. One of my favourite aspects of working at ISM is the opportunity to work with such enthusiastic children. We spend so much time teaching, sharing our knowlege and building relationships with them, that watching them develop and grow is so incredibly rewarding. Despite being based in Moscow for so long, I have never forsaken my roots as a proud English 'Northerner'. Being brought up in the English county of North Yorkshire, my passion for country living runs deep. I am most at home when out riding my horse or walking my beloved dog (Jasper) down the winding country lanes or over the moorland countryside. Linking to my love of the great outdoors, I am also a keen distance runner (10K) and gym-goer. An active lifestyle has always been second-nature to me, having experienced some tough physical and mental training in the three years when I was involved with the military.
