Charlotte started skiing aged 5 at a dry ski slope. Her talent was quickly noticed, as she became part of a race club that competed around the country. She only skied on snow for the first time aged 13 but within 2 years was selected to represent the England Alpine ski team.
Aged 17 Charlotte took the English Championship Title and was seen as Britain’s rising star. However a knee injury on the slopes led to tragic news that she would be unable to ski for a year. During her rehabilitation period Charlotte studied Sport and Exercise Science at Brighton University. Whilst studying, Charlotte was approached to become a sight guide for disabled athlete, Kelly Gallagher. After 4 years of training and racing the pair later achieved Britain’s first ever Winter Games Paralympics Gold Medal in Alpine skiing. To honour their success they both received an MBE, presented by Princess Anne.
Given Charlotte’s wealth of experience, from starting at the grass roots of skiing and then reaching the pinnacle of the sport, Charlotte enjoys coaching and inspiring children to reach their goals.
