“It might sound a bit melodramatic to say that the Jurassic Coast changed my life but on reflection, it probably did. A whistle-stop geography fieldtrip to the Jurassic Coast as a schoolgirl kick-started my interest in geology and geomorphology. As a result, I went to university to read geography and carried on from there. I therefore think it is vital that others have the same opportunity to be inspired by this coastline and I want to play a role in ensuring that this happens.”

Since that first visit, Julie became a regular visitor to the Jurassic Coast. She now has more time to walk her unruly dogs on the cliffs and beaches as a result of having a base in East Devon. When not doing this, she also rows and is studying for her Master of Wine qualification
