Meet the Love Her Wild team making it happen….

I’m Bex Band, founder of Love Her Wild.

The best thing that ever happened to me was going on an adventure! It built my confidence and made me realise my potential. I haven’t stopped since. As well as running Love Her Wild, I’m a blogger, speaker and ocean advocate, I’ve hiked the length of Israel and kick-scooted the length of the USA. You can find out more about me on the Ordinary Adventurer.

I discovered my love of adventure late in life. It wasn’t easy in the beginning and I found the outdoor scene very competitive and judgemental. As an ordinary woman struggling with low self-esteem I felt very out of place. So I set up Love Her Wild to help other women access adventure in a more supportive and fun way!

Love Her Wild has grown to a community of over 6,000 women. We connect women locally (in the UK) and organise expeditions all over the world. Sign up to our newsletter below. Join our private Facebook group and check out our upcoming adventures.

I look forward to meeting you on an adventure soon 🙂

Seanna Fallon – Community Manager

I’m an outdoors enthusiast, a wanderluster, a dreamer, a blogger (Seanna’s World), a sloth-like runner, a casual yogi, a soon-to-be arctic adventurer, an advocate for using the outdoors to improve mental health, and a dabbler in anything active or nature orientated. Contrary to many in this neck of the woods, I defend my position to not quit my job for adventures but rather to do meaningful work that gives me stability, but squeeze as much fun as possible into my spare time. I’m obsessed with Love Her Wild and the world it has opened up to me!! 

Kate Owen – Expedition Leader

Adventure and work has always been very closely linked for me. I spent 8 years working in television where I was lucky enough to travel all over the world making documentaries about the planet, it’s amazing cultures and the environment. Now I work as an expedition leader and guide taking groups of young people and adults on adventures to encourage them to learn about the world, look after our planet and use the natural environment to help our wellbeing.
I have lived out of my car, on friends sofas and on a tiny boat but the dream is too build a small house, grow my own veggies, have some animals and help people struggling with mental health through the outdoors.

Jan Phillips – Expedition Leader

I’ve been a bit of a mountain goat all my life, starting at aged 8 months pulling my dad’s hair out in the baby carrier! I work as a dental nurse during the week, specialising in special care and emergencies which I enjoy. My true heart lies in North Wales up in the mountains though. I have two autistic children who are both following in my love of the mountains.
Getting involved with Love her wild is so exciting! 

Fiona Orrell – Adventure Organiser

With a passion for the outdoors, I’m currently grabbing life’s opportunities with both hands! I love hiking, outdoor swimming, wild camping, cycling, climbing and I’m always up for giving anything new a go! As a Mum of two, I squeeze in as many adventures around my work and family life as possible. Director of my own online business (Ocean Clear) selling products aimed at reducing every day waste, I run a voluntary community recycling scheme alongside which has provided me with a platform to connect with schools and environmental charities locally. 
Joining the Love Her Wild Community has been hugely rewarding for me and now I’m really happy to a part of it!

Tanzi Baigent – Eco Ambassador

After a recent move to Devon from the Alps I found a way to bring my passion for adventure home, with surfing & paddle boarding fitting in well with my other loves of downhill biking, hiking and trail running. I am Director of ethical jewellery brand, LUPE, a meditation teacher and I am currently writing a book about global environmental sustainability.
