Elizabeth is one of Splash Action Response Project Leader which is our exciting new open enrolment programme that reconnect teams and supports communities to get back on their feet through adventure with purpose. Elizabeth is also the Chief Operating Officer for the Kayak 4 Heroes event who have recently partnered with Splash Projects to showcase just what is possible in the challenge space.

Elizabeth has a unique skill set gained from impressive experience in the elite sports world, the charity sector and 18 years military service. This diverse background is driven by one thing, her passion for adventure and a drive to take people on a journey of discovery. Through leading teams at the Invictus Games, Paralympics and whilst on Military Operations her leadership has been tested. She is now set to embed this knowledge into Splash Projects to the benefit of all participants.
Not afraid of a challenge herself, as a former Athlete and Manger of the British Biathlon Team she decided to pioneer the first ever British Para Nordic Team. Here her energy, enthusiasm and determination saw her concept accelerated to lead the Team to the Paralympics in just 18 months, this was alongside delivering the Paralympic Inspiration Programme on behalf of the British Paralympic Association. Underpinning all that she has achieved is the desire to give back to the veteran community where through the delivery of a number of sports recovery programmes including in the role as the Sport and Operations Manager within the Invictus Games, and as the Chief Operations Officer for the Armed Forces Para Snowsport Team. Here her understanding of the charity sector has seen first hand the impact that can be made when Teams come together with a shared purpose to make a difference and the benefits it has to all involved.

Beyond the demands of these roles, Elizabeth is married to her very understanding husband, with three Children who also enjoy adventures as a family that take them cycling and kayaking around the UK.
