MAJ NICS WETHERILL

MAJ NICS WETHERILL, ROYAL ARMY MEDICAL CORPS

Maj Nics Wetherill is a General Practitioner trainee, based in Portsmouth.  Nics earned an Army Medical Cadetship while studying at University of Southampton Medical School, and it was here she first thought of taking an all-female team across Antarctica. After commissioning from Sandhurst in December 2012 she was posted to Germany where she swapped her alpine racing background for Nordic skiing, and ended up captaining the Army Medical Services ladies biathlon team.  Meeting Nat Taylor along the way, she realised this was the partner she had been waiting for to fulfil the Antarctic dream and encourage girls to take up adventurous training.  Nics is particularly focused on promoting the benefits of physical activity and encouraging girls and women of all ages to stretch themselves both physically and mentally.
