I grew up in rural Australia, by the sea, surrounded by big skies and outdoor adventures and was usually covered in sand and salt. I’m grateful for my parents amazing commitment to sustainability (way before it was cool) and how they nurtured my spirit for adventure. Wherever I have lived, from Canada to the tropical north of Australia, the ocean and sustainable living have been ever present.
I have relished 15 years working in museums, galleries and arts precincts in the UK and across Australia, always with a commitment to community and stakeholder engagement. I have worked with major gifts, trusts and foundations, government and corporate supporters and headed up the Development Program at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. This experience is underpinned by a Fine Art degree and Masters in Art Curatorship.
Now finding myself again in the UK the call of the ocean pulled us to wild, windy, wonderful Cornwall. Having started with Surfers Against Sewage in 2020 I am loving the energy of the team and bringing my fundraising experience together with my passions for adventure, the ocean and sustainability. Outside of the office I can often be found chasing my partner and three children across beaches, coastal paths, rivers, woodland and moors… usually in search of Cornish ice cream.
