I've worked for the National Trust since 2002 and I moved up to the Lake District to take up a job in Buttermere and Ennerdale in 2008.
I'd always enjoyed fellwalking holidays but what's really struck me since I came to the Lakes are the amazing stories buried beneath the surface of the landscape.
I feel privileged to work alongside our knowledgable rangers. Whenever I go out on the hills with one of them I always learn something about the history, the wildlife, the archaeology, the geology. I think of it like getting beneath the skin - there's this awe-inspiring landscape with this incredible cultural depth beneath it. I'm certainly never bored!
