“Going in one more round when you don’t think you can – that’s what makes all the difference in your life.”

Rocky Balboa

Beth grew up in the North Wales seaside town of Rhyl, where she spent her childhood on the beach, winning science awards and climbing Snowdon (10 times!). Beth was selected as head girl at school as she excelled across a range of sports and graduated top of her class, and took the logical next step of dashing off to university to read Chemistry and Molecular Physics. After completing her undergraduate degree at Nottingham University she stayed on to complete a Masters in Computational Chemistry where she looked at how applications from experimental coding to quantum mechanics could be used to evolve computing architecture. Although quantum physics consumed much of Beth’s academic success, her real passion is in mountain climbing; at the current count we make it 37 summits conquered!

Beth is an enthusiastic and energetic member of the team and the long-time holder of the ladies' 100m sprint title at the Periscopix weekend away. She's also the person to see if you need to improve your tennis swing and is always the first one to sign up for trips to the rock climbing centre around the corner (Beth organises the trips).
