Biography: I qualified as "Guide of the Year" 2003 in London and two years earlier qualified to guide in the West Country. Previously, my life has been steeped in the theatre both as a professional actress and a West End casting director. I have also taught English and drama in secondary schools and brought up a family. I became a guide because I wanted to open people's eyes to the many fascinating aspects of this country and I enjoy working with people of all ages from all walks of life.
