Who is Jamie Aarons?
I am a 43-year-old California girl, but I moved to Scotland (allegedly for a year or two) in 2005. Since living here, I have embraced trail running, mountain biking, kayaking and the freedom of our Right to Roam – it’s one of the main reasons why my endlessly supportive partner, Andy, and I live here. We can regularly be found in the local hills, lochs and trails doing various activities, often with our rescue dogs, Pirate and Hope (collectively known as The Fluffs).
I have been a social worker for nearly 20 years, initially with children with disabilities and their families and subsequently with adults. I am now a Social Work Advisor with Scottish Government, a job that I love (and for which I got my British citizenship so I could take it up – if that doesn’t demonstrate enthusiasm for what I do, I don’t know what would ).
I am not new to adventure or endurance activities, but the Munro Challenge is the most daunting goal I have ever considered. I’m looking forward to sharing this adventure with friends old and new and have been overwhelmed by the offers of help, many by complete strangers. This will truly be a team effort, though I may be the most sleep-deprived and midge-bitten amongst us!
