At the age of 10 years Trudie saw the North Sea for the first time. Soon sea shells formed part of her luggage back home to Bavaria in Germany.
As a professional tour guide in Britain, Normandy and Brittany this led her into a career as a travel guide book writer for Polyglott and Langenscheidt publishers in Germany. She now works as a free lance travel writer and editor. This led her to the Channel Islands in 2002 when she wrote the Channel islands guide book for Merian books.
Trudie fell in love with Jersey and the South East coast low tide zone. She happily links her passion for marine biology and local history with her training as a geographer on her guided walks to Seymour and Icho Towers, as well as developing a range of guided walks which explore the marine history and culture of Jersey.
She has since moved to Jersey to be closer to the sea.
Trudie is often your first point of contact when making a booking with Jersey Kayak and Jersey Walk Adventures.
