Biography

I am an climate and nature campaigner driven by my desire to see Australian decision makers center nature at the heart of their actions to ensure our beautiful oceans remain healthy. I have a Bachelor of Laws (First Class Honours) and Behavioural Science (Psychology). I am also admitted as a solicitor in the NSW Supreme Court and High Court of Australia.

 

In my Masters of Environment and Sustainability, I will be unpacking how stakeholder capitalism can encourage businesses to mitigate climate change. My ambition is to help drive corporations to recognise planetary boundaries by shifting their operations and policies to achieve net zero emissions well before 2050. Further study will strengthen my corporate leadership capabilities and enable me to achieve these goals.

 

Outside of work and study, you'll find me either scuba diving in tropical reefs, practicing as a silks aerials artist, or trying some new tricks on my roller skates.

Skills & Expertise

  • Climate mitigation
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Environmental analysis
  • Project management and teamwork
  • Advocacy and negotiation

"My greatest achievement in life has been daring to be bold and giving up a stable, secure job as a solicitor to become a environmental campaigner."
