I’m one of the newer recruits to the Surfers Against Sewage team, joining initially as a Projects Officer in March 2018, but quickly transitioning into my current role where I utilise my background in marine science and ecology to inform and direct our campaigns. I have an incredibly varied role which could involve speaking with MP’s in Parliament one day, to investigating sewage spills the next!
From the site of my first SAS beach clean in Aberystwyth, where I undertook my undergraduate degree in marine biology, my work and research has taken me around the world to Malaysia and New Zealand. I’ve now settled in the (slightly less exotic, but no less amazing) South-West, firstly for a Masters degree in Applied Marine Science at Plymouth University, and now to begin my journey at SAS.
Outside of work, I’ll be getting in the sea as much as possible – you’ll usually find my wetsuit drying out the front of our Wheal Kitty office. When it’s flat, I’ll be holding my breath – not just praying for surf, but spearfishing or hunting for lobster around the incredible underwater world hiding along the Cornish coastline.
