Combining the human and the environmental
to change our world.
This is me
What is it I do? It has always been a little hard to describe as I do a lot of things - some might call me a generalist. BUT I like to say I have a specific set of skills that sets me apart, and that is my ability to combine the environmental and the social for sustainable outcomes.
With a background in human geography and a masters degree in environmental planning, I'm well placed to advise and plan for communities of the future. As one of Australia's leading social sustainability consultants, I have been engaged to work on social planning, stakeholder and community engagement across the country, seeking better outcomes for people and place.
I am on a mission to see humans and communities placed at the heart of our planning.
Social sustainability has been the poorer cousin of sustainability for too long. Without people, who are we planning for? Let's work together and elevate social sustainability in our thinking and work to achieve sustainable outcomes and resilient communities.

I advise government
and companies in social policy, planning & strategy.
I love to understand people at both the macro and micro scale, and I think that people are at the core of our policy and planning for the future. You'll also find I see things through a lens that considers the world we are in - a climate change affected world, one that needs sustainable development prioritised and one that sees all people as equal.

-Social impact assessment
-Stakeholder engagement strategy and execution - internal and external stakeholders
-Strategy, policy and planning advice for all things sustainability related

My rates are flexible according to the tasks involved. Please don't hesistate to message or reach out if you would like to explore ways we can work together.
