“Jennie’s warm personality and fun nature make her a great course leader.

Throughout the week she had us hanging on her every word one minute and in

fits of laughter the next. An excellent course leader who can share her passion,

enthusiasm and knowledge with her students, providing them with the

essential skills to lead others into adventures in the outdoors.”
