Head of Communications and Policy
Since early 2016 I have overseen all our communications and marketing work, including sharing the stories of the many people and organisations around the world that are taking big steps towards achieving One Planet Living.
I managed PR and digital comms at the sustainable energy charity Ashden, and before that, at the Ethical Trading Initiative. Before catching the communications bug I worked in international development. This included spending the second half of the 1990s in Palestine, where I worked on a wide range of projects to help build the private sector and civil society and learned to speak Arabic.
I enjoy any kind of outdoor swimming – the colder the water, the better!
