Greetings troops, I’m Ste, formerly known as Stevie but we have too many Alpacas called that so I have been relegated!
I spent the last 8 years in Dubai working in the corporate world and visited Alpacaly in March 2019 on holiday. I loved it so much I never left and I have loved every second of it since. The team is so small and tight knit and is the best work environment I have been in.
I love meeting our guests but I especially enjoy rescuing our animals and getting them back to full health and seeing how they flourish.
Billy and Rosie are my personal favourites. They are just so weird and unique and a joy to be around. I have a Ziggy tattoo as he was the first Alpaca I ever met and will be getting Billy added soon!
Outside of work I play rugby, skateboard and surf when I can get away. I recently became a dad and I cant wait to take my son out on adventures around The Lakes and with our amazing animals.
Another thing I am passionate about is raising money and awareness for mental health services. Having close experiences with those suffering its something I take seriously. I climbed Ben Nevis in June 2020 carrying 30kg of slate and a 20kg log. On the slate were the names of friends who lost their struggle. This was then built into a cairn at the summit in their honour. This was in aid of a fantastic charity, Rock2Recovery who have helped out some of my closest friends.
