Anne Grethe is a teacher with a degree in English and Sport. She has worked as a primary and lower-secondary school teacher for twenty years, both as a form teacher and a team leader, and as a programme advisor in adult education, where she recently took over as manager.
Anne Grethe has always worked with people. She is good at leadership, teamwork, delegation and recognising the individual. She is caring, responsible and extremely social.
She likes a challenge, and dares to go outside her comfort zone in order to grow.
In her spare time, Anne Grethe has always been active and enjoyed exercise and training such as football, swimming, strength training and cross FIT. But her absolute favourite outdoor activity, which she is practically addicted to, is going on summit hikes! She is known for being up on the peaks all year round. She likes to motivate others to get outside, regardless of whether it’s mountain hiking or simply walking.
Any activity is better than none!
She helps people to get out into the mountains through her work at Odda/Ullensvang Walking Club, where she helps to build and mark out pathways and beacons and is involved in the general management of public mountain cabins.
Anne Grethe is also the leader of the walking club and has worked as a tour leader for the last ten years. She has led tours in Folgefonna, Jotunheimen, and to local mountain summits and areas such as Trolltunga and Dronningstien, in all seasons.
In 2013 Anne Grethe took a short ‘time out’ from family and friends, and went alone on a holiday to the Dolomites. It was love at first sight – now she can’t get enough of these mountains, and has taken guided tours in Cortina and Bad Gastein as often as she can in the last five years.
She has completed courses in First Aid, mountain and avalanche safety, and has herself led a number of outdoor life courses (for beginners).
Anne Grethe is a freelancer at Expa Travel.
She speaks fluent English, conversational German and basic French.
Anne Grethe is married to Yngve, and they have two grown-up children.
