I set up Tough Girl Challenges as a way of motivating and inspiring women and girls. I'm the host the Tough Girl Podcast where I’ve interviewed over 230 inspirational female explorers, adventurers, athletes and everyday women who have overcome great challenges. The Tough Girl Podcast has been downloaded over 950,000 time in 174 countries. It won the Women’s Sport Trust, Media Initiative of the Year Award in May 2018 and the Shetreme Adventure Sports Podcast in 2019.
I completed the Marathon des Sables in April 2016 and in 2017 I thru hiked the Appalachian Trail (2,190 miles) in 100 days! I completed my Masters in Women & Gender studies at Lancaster University in 2018 and cycled over 4,000 km down the Pacific Coast Highway and Baja California. I’m now based in the UK and will be looking to do more hiking challenges.
