Fresh air and nature

As a young girl growing up on a farm I've always been surrounded by a lot of fresh air and nature, which ignited my passion for geology and how this fascinating world began. I've always loved exploring new countries going on expeditions across Asia and South America and now I'm very excited to be working in Iceland in the caves to see the beauty it holds and to learn as well as share my passion in volcanic geology. Most people think the study of rocks is rather peculiar but I hope I can persuade some of you to understand my passion for the Earth and how it tells many fascinating stories of how it began to how it is this very day, which is why I pursued it to a higher education then after my time in Iceland I will be going onto study a Masters in Geology, then onto pursuing my career as an exploration geologist…I hope!

I've always been an outdoors girl who loves being very active from jumping over many ditches with my brother and playing in the mud to becoming a huge fell runner and completed many trail races across the fells of the Lake District. Iceland holds many physical challenging that I'm looking forward to conquering as well as embracing its wonders it beholds as well as immersing myself in the Icelandic culture and making the most of everything it has to offer.
