074: Alex had her first taste of climbing mountains during the winter in 2012 when she went on a solo three-week trek in the Nepal Himalayas. This life changing experience inspired her to reach even greater heights by setting one of the biggest goals of her life so far – to climb the ‘Seven Summits’, the highest mountain on each continent. In May 2018, Alex stood on the summit of Mt Everest for an exhilarating 40 minutes, having climbed every peak on her first attempt.
We talk about Alex's adventures in the mountains, leaving her corporate job and the fun challenges she has had along the way.
Alex is now a qualified Mountain Leader, a MTB guide and a British Athletics Run Leader, living in St. Moritz in Switzerland.
She loves sharing her passion with others, seeing the spark in their eyes and the smile on their faces after they stepped out of their comfort zone and achieved something they didn’t realise they could or just simply to enjoy the beauty of nature.
