Bio: 
I am enthusiastic, energetic, curious, hardworking, easy going and adaptable. I am seeking new opportunities to engage with the environment and share my skills for the greater good. I love working with people and finding ways to create sustainable ways to raise awareness about the environment. My skills are not limited to just this so I must stress that I am also not workshy as I come from a farming background. My primary area of interest is conservation and environmental awareness. For the past 6 years I have worked to promote sustainable travel and environmental management in schools within my region as part of both a National Programme for the National Trust and a National Pilot study project for the Department of Tourism, Transport and Sport.. The primary aim of this work is to reduce car dependency through soft interventions such as awareness workshops (Climate Change, Environmental Impacts) , interventions at a local level (bike fixing, action days to promote walking/cycling). This work has provided me with a wide range of skills from community engagement, website management environmental education delivery, design and delivery of key initiatives as well as advanced reporting/IT/PR skills. Prior to my work in the area of transport, my work related to biological recording with an emphasis on data management and the identification of knowledge gaps. Through this work I gained experience in survey design, database creation, community engagement, plant taxonomy & identification. On a personal level, I love art (have done murals in the past, sketching), independent films, bird-watching, scooting (kick scooters:)), cooking (French) and hiking I am currently seeking a change in direction and am seeking volunteer work in the area of environmental care. I hope to get involved in new projects from late August onwards and would be thrilled to share my skills and learn new things. So if you need someone to help with your project...do get in touch.
Volunteering Experience: 
I have a range of experience as a volunteer. These include volunteer event organiser for Local Festivals, Organising Charity fundraising events, organising and motivating volunteers for local community clean ups on behalf of TidyTown groups, preparing media for community presentations.
