Collaborations and Communications Manager (maternity cover)
Cambridge Conservation Initiative

Role: CCI team



As CCI’s Collaborations and Communications Manager (Maternity Cover) I work to catalyse collaborations across the Initiative’s partnership, as well as managing internal and external communications.

Prior to joining CCI, I worked as an Associate Lecturer in Responsible Tourism at UQ Business School and as an independent auditor for Ecotourism Australia. I have been a technical advisor and project manager for various Australian and international projects – advising protected area management agencies, the Government of Vanuatu and as an external collaborator of the United Nations World Tourism Organization.

I am a Director of Wildlife Wonders and an Advisory Board Member to Adventure Out Loud, both social enterprises.

I have always had a key focus on inspiring positive environmental behavior change through education and communication projects as well as providing capacity building focused on sustainable development.
