Charlotte first tried skiing as a youngster, when her Dad took the family to a dry ski slope. She quickly took to the sport and progressed to snow. By 2009, she was part of the England Alpine Ski Team and English overall champion before she got injured while competing at the British Championships.

Whilst going through rehab, Charlotte was working as a coach when she was asked to consider being a Guide. She began working with Kelly Gallagher at an Alpine Skiing Training Camp in Hintertux in November 2010.

Charlotte made her international debut for GB alongside Kelly Gallagher at the 2011 IPC World Championships in Sestriere, Italy, where they won silver in the Slalom and bronze in the Giant Slalom. They built on this success to win four medals from five events at the 2013 IPC World Championships in La Molina, Spain, and they also won gold at the 2013 World Cup Final in Sochi, Russia.
