Born in Singapore, Annabelle has lived in Hong Kong, Indonesia, USA, UK and Switzerland. Her career took her back to Hong Kong where Annabelle worked in Real Estate for ten years working her way up the ranks and becoming a director of the company.
Whilst always athletic, Annabelle took it to the next level and became an endurance runner competing in the grueling machlehose trail, a 63 mile mountain marathon in Hong Kong, for four consecutive years. She became the 2nd fastest woman in one race in a completion time of 16 hours 50 minutes.
Annabelle applied this mental discipline to mountain climbing and her first climb was Aconcagua in Argentina in December 2001. She continued to scale numerous peaks above 6,000 meters in Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia with her Chilean team.
She reached the summit of mount Everest on May 15th 2004, making her the fourth British woman to ever stand on top of the world. Since climbing mount Everest, Annabelle went onto scale all seven summits, the highest peaks on each continent in just 360 days reaching the summit of Denali in Alaska on 10th May 2005, thus making her the fastest woman climber in the world and part of an elite group of less than 115 people to have ever achieved this physical and logistical feat.
Annabelle climbed the seven summits to raise money for the Eve Appeal which specialises in the prevention of Ovarian Cancer, to date Annabelle has raised 1.6million USD for this cause and thanks everyone whom has so generously donated.
