As a complete novice, after a lot of hard work juggling small children and training to get fit Ann began her Polar career when she answered an advert for the McVities Penguin Polar relay. She immediately fell in love with expedition life and the Polar Regions and has since taken part in many expeditions, breaking records, leading men and women in the most hostile environment on earth and working with scientists around the globe to better understand these icy regions. Here are some of her most notable expeditions to date.
