I’m a doctor and a mother. Four years ago I read something about climate change that woke me up to the urgency and scale of the problem. I realised I had to do what I could, for my kids and to save the natural world I love.
As a doctor I’m interested in the health implications of environmental degradation but I’ve found it fascinating to learn about other aspects: ecosystems, agriculture, economics, energy, etc
I’m passionate about the need to educate and engage communities and individuals. I love teaching and have done talks with schools, university students, health care staff and community groups.
Based in: Marsham
Topics of interest: Any, but in particular climate change (esp. health impacts) and oceans

University students, business and charity groups, and I have also spoken in a debate at the Cambridge Union.
My working background started in the financial industry but as I became more
focused on environmental issues I went back to university to study Environmental Science at UEA, working as an environmental consultant on graduating.
