    My heart has always been with nature. Entranced as a child, I carried this and grew myself into a career of horticulture, then sustainability practice, activism and art. My professional life has focussed around working with people and organisations, from local to national level, complex entities to simple groups, engaging different audiences and supporting action towards a sustainable future.

    Having been a member of ASP for the last couple of years, I jumped at the opportunity of becoming a Director and getting more involved with the community.

    ASP has felt so refreshing for me, I feel like I’ve come home and found a group of people that want to push the edges of sustainability thinking, and allow me to reflect deeply on my own practice. The quality of information and ideas coming from the community has been inspiring.

    I’m just starting the second part of a MOOC, which was promoted through ASP. It’s this kind of work that I feel really excited to explore further as a Director, sharing and learning with you all, and supporting the organisation where I can.
