Kate Appleby

Adaptive Adventurer

Climber, swimmer, hiker, SUP-lover, boulderer, trail explorer, traveller, and wild camper, Kate is an adaptive adventure living a life to the full.


​A domestic and sexual abuse survivor, Kate has gone on to share her story; of how her experiences have shaped her story, and how the outdoors has saved her life.​ From an attempt on her life as a young adult, to a diagnosis of Lupus and the day to day impact of living in chronic pain, Kate now talks publicly about how to adapt, overcome and live a life to its fullest, regardless of your barriers.

A motivational and public speaker, talking about her adventures in the UK and beyond, Kate works across the industry and beyond to ensure inclusivity and diversity are key agenda items for all across the outdoors industry.

"I survive in my comfort zone, and thrive outside it."
