I started at Tiso's Rose Street branch as the Retail Sales Manager about 10 months ago. I really liked the personality of the people I worked with and met through Tiso, so when the job of Store Manager came up here it would have been silly of me not to apply. Here I am, one month in!
My life so far has been a whirlwind of incredible experiences. I enjoy almost all outdoor activities, the scarier the better! Mountain biking, climbing, kayaking... And I love Scotland. The people, matched with the environment, is a killer combo. My favourite place is probably the needle at the top of the Cobbler (Arrochar Alps). I just LOVE being up there.
In 2007, I came back from two months in the Pyrenees without a job. Tiso were advertising for a sales assistant and I've been here ever since, moving my way up!
I'm a mountain runner and have a history of trekking for long distances in the mountains. I find that I'm out in more extreme conditions than most of our customers... so I really push the kit to its limits! It puts me in a better position to advise customers what they actually need. My perfect day would involve grabbing some running shoes and doing 5 or 6 Munros.
I started as a full time sales assistant at Tiso in 2014. The following autumn, I shadowed the outgoing ski technician to learn the tricks of the trade. I'm now reaching the end of my first season in the workshop.
I'm an active climber, skier, skydiver and speedflyer. I live for adventure, and get bored easily! I like working at Tiso because I enjoy being around like-minded people, and hearing about their adventures (whether that's colleagues or customers). I'm always looking out for the next idea, and enjoy helping other people get the right equipment for the job.
