Sophie works for AC in the capacity of our Medical Adviser, an invaluable role providing advice to our guides and climbers both in the field and prior to departure, ensuring our medical systems exceed industry standards and of course making sure that our climbers and Sherpa team are well cared for at Base Camp.

Sophie is an experienced emergency physician, currently based at the Royal Perth Hospital in Australia. Originally from the United Kingdom, she has a passion for the outdoors and has trekked, travelled, dived and worked in remote high altitude locations around the world. 

Sophie worked as our Expedition Doctor at Everest Base Camp in 2014, 2017 and 2018. Check out the AC Blog (link below) for an in-depth interview with Sophie about the intricacies of her work at Base Camp and life on the Khumbu Glacier.
