BSC Hons CEnv MCIEEM

Career: Left Manchester Uni in ‘98 to work for the British Council before heading off to be a zoology researcher for various institutions including Adelaide Uni, Oxford Uni and Arizona Uni.  Returned to the northwest to complete an MSc and after a brief spell with Government Office Northwest I joined TEP in 2004.

Listening to: 6 Music

Reading: “Fingers in the Sparkle Jar” by Chris Packham

Best Project: I don’t have favourites, some projects inspire because of the people, others because of the location and more besides due to the collaborative outcome we secure.

Not a lot of people know but…. That would be telling

Red or Blue? – Green!

Ecology and Sustainability

BA (Hons) MA AIEMA

Career: Graduated from the University of Leeds with a Bachelors and Masters degree in Environmental Management. Gained business experience in a Liverpool based firm of Solicitors before joining TEP in 2008. Along with Liz Seal, I jointly lead TEP’s wonderful team of ecologists helping our surveys run as smoothly as wildlife and seasonal restrictions allow!

Highlights so far: Being given the opportunity to develop TEP’s ecology service, watching us grow from having 15 to 45 in-house ecologists who deliver ecological protection and biodiversity enhancements on a range of significant and complex developments. Outside of project work, I’ll always be grateful for the support of my colleagues, clients and friends as I set about a yearlong TEP charity challenge in 2020-21 #5keveryday.

Watching: Not much… I get far too distracted by the adventure playground that is Snowdonia.

Reading: Anything swimming or running-related is usually on the list. Currently reading Space Below My Feet by Gwen Moffatt. I’m definitely not a climber (far too haphazard for that!) but love getting lost in her mountaineering exploits of North Wales and beyond.

Travel: Sri Lanka, China and Brazil are the most far-flung. Hoping to get a postponed swimming holiday back on the cards soon enough.
