I first met Gemma 10 years while we were both completing degrees in outdoor education. Gemma and I have walked, climbed and been mountaineering together all over the world and I see her on a regular basis. We have completed various outdoor qualifications simultaneously and supported each other through training, consolidation and assessment. I also have worked with Gemma before and she is an endearing instructor who genuinely wants the best for the clients she is leading and instructing. I have often seen her take extra time to explain concepts or theories in different ways to suit the learning styles of her students. This empathy has regularly made her popular with her students and she has used this relationship to give a quality experience for them. She has a depth of knowledge and experience of working with a wide cross section of society. Her mountain skills are good and she is ambitious and eager to learn while not being borish or overly single minded. Fundamentally, I sincerely trust her; she is hardworking, honest and always wants things to be fun. As a climbing partner I look forward to going cragging with her (which I believe speaks volumes).
