Having moved up to the North East in 2015, I have made it my home ever since. I have enjoyed exploring both the bluespaces and greenspaces on my doorstep. I have always had an awareness of environmental issues and I believe that it is crucial that everyone has access to the outdoors and open spaces, with the knowledge of how to preserve and protect these areas.

I have eight years’ experience working in the practical environmental sector and volunteering for environmental charities. I consider it vitally important that outdoor spaces are conserved and are available for communities and their future generations. I enjoy sharing my passion, play an active role, support and inspire communities within the Tyne to Tees coastline.

You’ll always find me out in nature either through walking in the my local area, hiking or sitting outside reading a book. But on those long winter nights you’ll probably find me in the baking in the kitchen!
