Number of years in the outdoor industry:
I joined EOCA in 2017, from a background in Ecology: having graduated from Edinburgh University with honours in Wildlife and Fisheries Management, and subsequently undertaking an MRes in Ecology at York University.
Prior to EOCA I worked for a number of years with Natural England’s wildlife management team. I have also previously volunteered with conservation projects in Central America.
Ever since I was a wee girl - seeing news items about the logging of the Amazon - I have wanted to work in conservation. Unfortunately the news reels have not changed much in the decades that have since past, but I am lucky to be part of an organisation trying to turn this destructive tide.
Favourite wild place:
For me nothing quite beats a stunning view - especially after the achievement of cycling or hiking to get there! It always makes me feel very lucky to be able to get out and enjoy the great outdoors!
