Her on a Hill - Navigating career change as a Mountain Leader

In my first ever podcast episode of About The Adventure I interviewed my friend and navigation teacher Clare Kelly who started her own women's walking company, Her on a Hill, in Spring 2019.

"It's about pushing yourself a bit and getting out of your comfort zone and the more you do that, the wider that comfort zone becomes." Clare Kelly, Her on a Hill

I asked Clare:

  • How has walking impacted your life and career?

  • How do you think that walking can change people's lives?

  • What happens to you if you don't get out for a walk?

  • Why have you created a women's walking company?

  • Why do you choose to create events that combine creativity, history, and learning while walking?

  • What challenges have you come across during your first year of running Her on a Hill?

  • How can you help people to get outside more and detach from busy lifestyles?

  • Who is your support network?

  • What do you want to happen with Her on a Hill?

  • What question would you ask people who want to explore a new career path?

I think that this episode will be of particular interest to people who are in the early stages of thinking about a change in career, to women who are looking for social group walks in the UK and beyond or for learning navigation skills, and to anyone who has an interest in how walking can have a positive impact on many different aspects of life.

Make sure that you listen all of the way to the end because Clare asks you a question to take away and think about. If you'd like to share your thoughts with us then contact Clare through her website or email
