Debbie lives in the Yorkshire Dales. If she is not at home you will find her somewhere out on the fells, or on top of a mountain. She trained as a teacher in Leeds, a career path that she followed for 30 years before spinal degeneration forced her into ill-health retirement.
Debbie’s love of fell walking blossomed when she met Andy, a keen hillwalker himself. But in 2008 she was no longer able to walk the hills she loves so much. She now uses a wheelchair to access the countryside. She is a consultant, speaker and writer specialising in inclusion and access for all.
