(our Guiding names are constellations)
I am a former Brownie, originally from West Yorkshire. I have lived in Hong Kong for 20 years and am an artist, arts educator and small business owner. I'm a mother of three children and I’m happiest when creating, cooking or camping with them. I was Barn Owl with DB's Brownie Pack A last year and am really excited to be joining the Guides this year!
I remember fondly my time as a Brownie, growing up in Australia. I have been living and working in HK as a professional musician for 17 years, as well as teaching teens and young adults. I am excited to rise to the challenge of being a Guide Leader, to help young girls grow, learn about themselves and to develop confidence to go out into the world.
I was born in Hong Kong and went to school in England. While I’ve never had the opportunity to be a Brownie, I love the outdoors. At school we had the Duke of Edinburgh award and camping is something we still often do as a family!
I was involved in Guiding in the UK as a Brownie, Guide, Ranger and Young Leader. I am so excited to be back in the movement in DB! I have made my living as a musician and small business owner, and owe so much of who I am today to my experience with the Girl Guides. I was extremely fortunate to travel to Sangam, one of our World Centres, in September 2019 to learn more about being a leader.
I am new to Guiding, although my daughter was a Rainbow in the U.K. I am originally from Scotland and have lived in Hong Kong for 16 years. I work as an educator for a kindergarten in Hong Kong. I am delighted to be part of our DB Girl Guides, and really look forward to supporting the girls in their wonderful Guiding adventure.
