About my work

Writing, research and facilitation

My experience as a writer stems from an early career in marketing and communications. This is a great background if you want to learn the basics of stringing a sentence together. And it is a uniquely terrible way to find your own voice.

Now, I am passionate about the craft of writing. I have studied creative non-fiction with the National Centre for Writing.

As well writing regularly for Club Soda, I’m working on some personal projects.

My research interests centre on people and the planet. I am especially interested in nature connection, sustainable behaviour and wellbeing.

My masters research used photography, walking and depth interviews to explore people's relationships with places in nature that were meaningful to them, and how their experiences shaped pro-environmental behaviours.

I teach research methods to environmental educators and nature connection practitioners who want to understand and enhance the impact of their work.

As a facilitator, I help people do good things together.

I have made all sorts of events better, from team meetings and board-level strategy workshops, to professional conferences and public gatherings. I am just as happy facilitating online as in the real world.

Along the way, I’ve trained as a coach with the Coaching Academy and as a nature connection facilitator at Schumacher College. I've led nature-based activities to support sustainability education for students at the London College of Fashion, and delivered nature connection activities for adults and young people on behalf of WildWise.

I also supported the 2016 Call of the Wild programme at Schumacher College, engaging adults in outdoor practical skills and personal development activities.

What we can do together

My work with Club Soda keeps me busy. But I am always happy to talk about writing assignments, research projects or facilitation gigs. One day, something will come along that brings everything together. If you want to work with me to make that happen, let's connect on LinkedIn, Instagram or Facebook.
