Life before Stowe

Travel has played a major role in my life, bringing with it a wealth of experience; spending the first three years of my life in Beirut. I grew up in Yokohama, Japan, then schooled in Sussex and worked as an airline stewardess with Japan Airlines based at LHR.

In 1996 I moved to Brittany, France to renovate a property, which is where I have been for the last 17 years, bringing up my gorgeous twins, Timmy and Tessa.  In the past few years I have worked most notably in a college and as a special needs teacher.
