“An exciting young scholar” – NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
Founded on a diverse interdisciplinary academic background in both the natural and social sciences I support people in high pressure environments to overcome mental and emotional obstacles by managing their internal conversation and building resilience.
I have dedicated my life and work to environmental change, social change, and more recently health and wellbeing. I’ve cultivated skills in management, public speaking, community engagement, facilitation, HR, and, in recent years, have taken up leadership roles in these fields
Leading on professional development for 25 years in the heritage sector, I have realised that at whatever stage in life – it’s how you plan your journey and what helps you to reach your personal goal that is key. Daring to push the boundaries needs focused time to think about what to do and work out how to burst your bubble!
