Growing up in Tasmania with a father who was a pioneering bushwalker meant I could identify the native trees of this gorgeous island before I knew my times tables. He so wanted me to share his love of nature that he even carried my heavy pack up all the big hills – it worked!
Now I have the best job in the world – working for WWF and connecting people who want to make a difference with solutions to some of the planet’s most challenging problems. I’m inspired every day by the passion of our partners and donors. It’s a great privilege to represent each of them within WWF and ensure their financial support makes the best possible impact.
I’ve worked mostly in education and conservation for the last 25 years, and in all sorts of places (from Arnhem Land to New York City). I never could decide if I cared more about helping people or nature. No surprise then that my favourite thing about WWF is our vision that reflects the intricate linkages of the two, a vision for “a future in which people live in harmony with nature.”
