Meet the Team
Coast & Moors Nordic Walking is owned by Pat Smillie and
Jo Davy, both qualified and experienced Nordic Walking Instructors and supported by walk leader Carol Dowling.
Pat is an experienced sportswoman and ex-Golf Pro having taught golf for over 20 years. The highlight of her career was coaching the England Golf Girls teams for 15 years. She has a sports science degree and is passionate about Nordic Walking and encouraging people to participate and enjoy exercising outdoors.
Having worked in the payroll industry for more than 20 years, Jo was becoming fed up of the commute and working inside all day. She says taking the opportunity to qualify as a Nordic Walking Instructor was the best career move she made. Jo indulges her passion of planning and leading walks to places and on trails that walkers have not been to.
Carol is a qualified and experienced walk leader. She joined us as one of our original clients and had never Nordic Walked before. Carol loved it so much, thats she undertook professional training and is now a walk leader who supports our new walkers and leads groups.
