Having grown up on a family farm in rural Hampshire, my passion for the countryside and in particular farming itself was well established from a young age. After spending many holidays working on the farm, I was led to study for a degree in Rural Land Management at The Royal Agricultural College, which I completed in 2009; then going on to qualify as a Rural Chartered Surveyor and Agricultural Valuer in 2011 whilst working at a regional firm in Gloucestershire.
In 2012, I moved to the Blackdown Hills with my husband Rob, where he works on his family farm. We now have three children, but I still enjoy working with farmers and landowners to assist with land management tasks.
