Teena Gates joins Sophia on the Via Francigena

This Autumn 2014, Sophia is hosting a trek along the Via Francigena in Italy. And we're delighted to announce that we will be joined by Teena Gates: author, blogger and adventurer!

Teena spent the last quarter of a century working in Ireland as a journalist, broadcaster and trainer. Known for presenting the breakfast news for two decades at the award winning 98FM, at which she was also Head of News. Prior to that she worked as a news anchor at 2FM. Already a household name, Teena was again celebrated for her incredible and inspirational journey to health, in which she lost 13 stone in one year.
