My role currently involves a range of responsibilities from active travel to electric vehicles and car-clubs; I also aim to help communities learn about and develop sustainable transport projects.
I have recently graduated from the University of Edinburgh where I studied a BSc (Hons) in Ecology and Environmental Science. I was able to explore my passion for community action through my dissertation which focussed on how communities benefit from and are involved with community woodlands. In my third year of university I studied abroad in Sydney and interned with an Aboriginal Land Corporation in remote Western Australia. This experience gave me insight into the strength and creativity of rural and remote communities and inspired me to get more involved in community action back home.
I love to learn through interaction with other people, places and lifestyles. I believe that the diversity of skills, experiences and opinions available when communities come together can be a huge force for positive change. Being able to support community groups to facilitate these changes is something I am excited and proud to be a part of.
In my spare time I love being active and exploring the outdoors. Whether walking, running, cycling, climbing or swimming I am a big fan of active transport! I’ve recently moved to the Western Isles for the first time so I have a lot of exploring to do on my doorstep and can’t wait to learn more about the history, language, music and wildlife of the Islands.
