If you were Prime Minister what things would you change?
Prime Minister is such a responsibility but I would love to hear of tougher restrictions to protect our countryside, lakes, rivers, seas from company’s that don’t respect the environment or whom over fish, over farm the land. I’m also sorely tempted to say free ice-cream for everyone!
If you won the lottery what would you do?
The majority would definitely go to supporting several charities and to setting up a trust to inspire young people to follow their aptitudes and live happy and healthy lives through an outdoor mentorship scheme.
If you could be a superhero who would you be? What special powers?
Superhero would have to be a female version of Thor and definitely include an ability to fly!
Who inspires you and why?
The people that inspire me most are often my patients who with ill health push themselves to the limit in our physiotherapy sessions together and do so with dignity and a smile. It makes me value my health every day that I work as a physiotherapist.
Where would you most like to visit on your travels or on an expedition?
I would like to tour Norway’s mountainous regions for climbing, mountaineering, cycling and swimming.
If you were to win a Nobel Peace what would it be for?
The Nobel Peace prize; goodness gracious I could never hope to achieve such a prize but have the upmost respect for those whom it has been awarded to.
If you were to live in another country where would you pick?
I would choose New Zealand, close to both sea and mountains.
As a time traveller where would you pick, what era and to see who?
I would choose the mid-19th Century and tag along to Marianne North’s solo expeditions around the world as a female traveller in an age where women did not travel alone; she did and painted an enormous collection of botanical work now based at Kew.
