I'm a nature lover, passionate advocate and educator. My background is in Social Ecology and I'm a trained teacher. I have worked on educational programs with children, young people and adults across a range of settings since 2005. Climate Change is something that's concerned me since I was 10 years old and I've been involved with many community organisations working in this space since my early 20's.

I spent time living and working in remote Central Australia during 2006 & 2007, and in 2017 answered a 10 year itch to return to the NT.  I moved to Darwin in 2017 and, during that year while on holidays down south, chanced upon Climate for Change~a Melbourne-based organisation doing the most inspiring climate advocacy work I'd seen! I later trained to become to a volunteer Facilitator and introduced the Climate for Change Conversation program to Darwin in 2019. The program was really well received by the Darwin community and (after a short blip during 2020 due to Covid) the ECNT Climate Conversations program was set up as a funded, stand-alone program at the beginning of 2021, with me at the helm as Coordinator.

During my time in the NT I've worked in Darwin, Alice Springs, Tennant Creek, Katherine and remotely. I'm confident the Conversation program will go from strength to strength in the NT, and I'm really pleased to have the opportunity to continue building the program here. Facilitating Climate Conversations is the best way I know to help shift the conversation on Climate Change, and achieve meaningful climate action. When I'm not facilitating Climate Change Conversations or working in education; you'll find me soaking up the beauty of the Darwin coast, fossicking for a hand-made, recycled treasure somewhere, or playing in my garden at home.
