I believe in the importance of good communication and working together to facilitate the passions and ambitions of the group that make up the club.”
“I’m a 24 year old student, currently studying a masters of research in biomolecular science. I’ve been a tubing supervisor for the past 8 years, having started as a volunteer before coming a paid member of staff. I eventually took the role of senior lead supervisor which allowed me to help implement changes and work with the rest of the team to making tubing a safer and more enjoyable experience for staff and customers alike.

“Newly elected to the committee in 2021 I’ve been a member of the ski club since 2014 when we joined as a family to teach our daughters to ski.
My role is now that of ski mum/taxi driver. When not ferrying around the different slopes across the country you will find me here at our amazing slope (often in the bar area!) watching my youngest daughter train. I am also the Race Secretary for the Norfolk Club National and you will find me in the race hut when we are hosting our own events, recording times and pouring over the spreadsheets!
If you see me please do come and say hello – always happy to listen to ideas.”
“I have been skiing for approximately 30 years (starting with straight skis and rear entry boots) and first attended NSC when I was a student at UEA 16 years ago. Since then I have joined the race team, been a volunteer boot fitter and qualified as a ski instructor, development coach and performance coach. Currently I am working towards qualifying as an alpine development coach (L4) after completing the initial training week in Italy earlier this year.
My current roles at the club focus on my role as an instructor and coach, taking leading roles at
Junior Club, Race Training, Masters and Instructor Training, but also assisting with other areas.
Through these roles I have also worked with freestylers and snowboarders, particularly in relation to skier cross and boarder cross.
Outside of skiing I work part time as a solicitor and also helping to manage my family business.”
“I joined the ski club in 2015 ahead of our first family ski holiday that winter. What started out as
merely functional exercise soon turned into a hobby and then a passion. The evenings and
Saturdays spent bringing my 2 children back and forth didn’t feel like a chore, there was something
about the atmosphere at the club that gripped me. I do ski myself but have found my niche as a supporting act for my children, taking them
to ski all over the UK and also doing a bit of officiating.
I have worked in financial services and travel for 20+ years in commercial roles, working for British
Airways, Virgin Money, Aviva and Legal & General. I now work for John Lewis Financial Services
where I head the Car and Pet Insurance propositions. I want to be able to use my extensive experience from the commercial world to help the club retain its enviable position both in the community and in UK sport, reinforcing its place as the best dry slope in the country.
