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 grew up in Sydney, and travelled around Australia after finishing my undergraduate studies. I spent time living and working in Central Australia during 2006 & 2007, and afterwards settled in Northern NSW. In 2017 I moved to Darwin for work.  While on holidays down south, I 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 until, like so many other things it was put on hold by Covid-19.  I'm really pleased to say that during that time ECNT (in partnership with Climate for Change) secured funding to develop an ECNT Climate Conversations Program, to be delivered NT-wide.

During my time in the NT I've worked with communities 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 somewhere for a hand-made, recycled treasure, or playing in my garden at home.
