I was a 10 year old living in New Zealand when I started to have regular highland dancing lessons.
Tuition in ballet was added the following year.
By the age of 16 I had gained my membership of the Royal Academy of Dancing (now Royal Academy of Dance).
I then returned to Scotland and achieved my dream of winning the Adult World Highland Dancing Championship.
At this time I was also dancing in Theatre shows, gained my Membership and then Fellowship of the United Kingdom Alliance.
I met my entertainer husband, Joss Esplin, while dancing at the Tivoli Theatre in Aberdeen.
A brief spell back in New Zealand was followed with more successful examinations with the British Ballet Organization and the New Zealand Academy of Piping and National Dancing Inc.
Joss and I returned to Scotland
our career with television, theatre, tours to Canada and America,
