when did you start TG?


Where did you join TG from?


What is the main purpose of your role? Do you have any key specialisms?

My main purpose is to be a Project Manager and Surveyor for ecological phases of developments. I am also part of the Social team (reviewing ecological social content for our socials), Sales team (meeting with clients and stakeholders, encouraging others to engage with their clients and discussing how to get the sales strategy incorporated into the work of the wider team) and Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) team. I am beginning to train on River MoRPh surveys so I can fully complete BNG assessments for the company.

What drives you? What are your values? Do you support any initiatives outside of TG?

Honesty, Kindness and Supporting Others are my personal values. In keeping with this I go into local schools (I have a lot of teacher friends) and do presentations on what careers you can have with Biology degrees outside of medicine. I didn’t know any of this until I had gone to university already and definitely would have been quicker at getting into this career if I had known at 15/16.

What are your interests? Hobbies? Fun facts?

I love going to concerts and festivals, this year is Glastonbury so very excited for this one. Music wise I am into everything and know the words to most songs… even if I am tone deaf, if I put my music on shuffle it will go from country to drum and bass to 70s disco. I read way too much fantasy for me to be able to give recommendations to my friends who aren’t into it even though I am known as the reader of the group. I also love going on what I call hikes but are most likely just slightly longer walks to most people, even better when they are in foreign countries, my favorite is the States.
