how it all began

With a passion for the natural world and the coastal environment, I wanted others to connect with it. Over 7 years ago I started a little marine wildlife club for kids and started taking them to the beach to learn. I've been doing it ever since. 

 

I have a distinct, and specialist set of skills linked to the coast derived from many places. Teaching, being a ranger, a voluntary coastguard, an adult tutor, working at a zoo, conservation volunteering, travel and working abroad at camps.  

I'm highly experienced in delivering Environmental Education, Marine Education and Ocean Literacy, Outdoor Learning and STEM activities on, and about, the coast, educating, empowering and inspiring us to care for and conserve our salty environment and habitats.
