I’m a friendly and easy-going person who loves everything about the natural environment and engaging with people from all walks of life. So, it’s not a surprise to say I hold a BSc (Hons) degree in Environmental Studies from Sunderland University.

I started my environmental career 20 years ago and still really enjoy the diversity each day brings. I love the coast, so when I’m out collecting bags of marine litter from the beach with the public I feel a great sense of satisfaction at the end of the day knowing that we’re leaving the sea and beaches a little bit cleaner.
