Executive Director & Climate Ambassador
I studied Sociology in University College Dublin and Humanitarian Diplomacy with the Red Cross. I spent 7 years traveling the world; after driving to China for charity I became editor of an English news aggregator site in Beijing called Worldwire. After two years I moved to Canada to work in a Forest School. I returned home because rather than live in paradise, I felt compelled to create my own and give Ireland what history had taken, it’s wilderness.
I am a student of Environmental Protection in IT Sligo and a Climate Ambassador with An Taisce.
Director & Sustainability Advocate
Currently working in Digital Marketing Strategy with a focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
In 2017 and 2018 I took time off work to volunteer and travel around Africa and Asia. I saw first hand the effects of climate change and consumerism has on our world in a way that I had been blind to before. When I got home I found out my beloved Ireland currently has a ‘Biodiversity Emergency’ status and that we have the lowest native forestry cover in Europe less with than 2%. I was devastated.
