In 2018, after years of working in the high-stress environment of London newsrooms, she took a career break and walked 800 miles down the South Island of New Zealand on the Te Araroa long-distance hiking trail. The three months of being outdoors every day changed her perspective on life and work and led to the creation of The Outdoors Fix podcast.

The Outdoors Fix podcast, which is in its 8th series, has reached No. 1 on the Apple Podcasts Great Britain-Wilderness category several times.

The stories and tips from the podcast have now been pulled together in a book, The Outdoors Fix, which was published in March 2023 by Vertebrate Publishing. 

Liv is also a producer for BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and her writing has appeared in Telegraph Travel, The Evening Standard and The Great Outdoors magazine. She lives on the edge of the Chilterns.
