I have primarily worked in Sustainability, Energy Management, Climate Change Risk Assessment, Due Diligence and Environmental Risk. This work has been in a diverse range of sectors including energy and local and central Government.
I have worked across the Asia Pacific region, from Government policy setting through to community engagement projects. My favourite projects are those where I work in partnership with people to facilitate equitable access to sustainable options.
I have a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Geology and Palaeobotany from the University of Tasmania and a PhD in Marine Palaeoecology from the University of Queensland in 2010.
I work in sustainability because I grew up in Tasmania in a family involved in the Gordon-below-Franklin Dam project, which was one of the most significant environmental campaigns in Australian history. Environmental protection was ingrained early.
My “why” is finding that balance between creating sustainable options for people, without shutting anyone out of the journey because they can’t afford to participate. We cannot let sustainability be a luxury for the wealthy.
In my spare time, I walk my dog (this takes more time than you could possibly image…he’s a German Shorthaired Pointer – GSP), scuba dive and get involved in beach clean-up days.
