What drives you? The need to preserve and protect the environment for my children and their children. Total cliché but that’s what drives cold fear into my heart! 

What projects do you work on that you love or are most passionate about and why? I work on a wide spectrum of projects, ranging from compliance reviews to reporting obligations, to strategic work around integrating human rights responses into the business operations. I love them all for different reasons – the compliance reviews because it means that we assist organisations to run their business as mandated by law, and the strategic pieces because it really means that you get an opportunity to shift thinking and practices towards sustainability for the long term. 

Career highlight/game changing project/something that made a big impact: I’ve had a few of those, but I think the most relevant for the here and now is becoming a mother and moving countries. Both of these events brought about big career changes.
