Mikaela is passionate about outdoor education and visual communication.  She is a freelance outdoor instructor and photographer based in South Wales and works around the UK facilitating mountain adventures.  Mikaela is also an experienced overseas expedition leader, and believes that enabling young people to take ownership of real challenges empowers them to become independent, confident, brave individuals and global citizens.  

As a photographer and writer Mikaela has been featured and exhibited in a range of publications including TGO, Summit Magazine and Intrepid magazine.  She writes about her own stories of adventure, learning in the outdoors and reviewing the gear she uses.

Mikaela is also a fully qualified teacher and endeavours to bring learning into the outdoors in all that she does.  She has worked with young people and adults from all walks of life and has considerable experience facilitating workshops for groups with additional and complex learning needs.
