Senior Project Manager
I work on a suite of environmental and One Planet Living projects across Oxfordshire and further afield
After joining Bioregional in 2013 I worked on the UK's first Eco Town development, NW Bicester, helping to deliver its sustainability aspirations using the One Planet Living Framework. I have worked on a range of environmental projects across the wider town of Bicester and I’m currently a long-standing director of Bicester Green, a thriving reuse and sustainability centre.
I have helped to lead One Planet Oxfordshire, a county-wide vision for a truly sustainable future and Oxfordshire Greentech, a business network for the low carbon future.
Before Bioregional, I worked in the planning department of a local authority as Sustainable Growth Officer and for Building Research Establishment (BRE) where I worked on large scale masterplans nationally and internationally and engaged with local authorities on sustainable planning and renewable energy.
When I'm not at work, I love spending time with my young family, watching almost any sport (especially my beloved Watford FC), attempting to still play football, getting out into the wild, pretending to bird watch and grow my own fruit and vegetables!
I have developed numerous One Planet Action Plans for a variety of development and organisations across Oxfordshire and assisted in the creation of site-wide sustainability action plan for a large-scale garden town development including: context analysis, ecological footprinting and detailed objectives and actions. I have been leading the development and operations of an Oxfordshire wide business network for low-carbon businesses and organisations and helped to deliver the sustainability aspirations of the UK’s first eco-town in Bicester – including monitoring progress of the development-wide action plan.
