Travelling with friends, family and solo has led me to recognise how important tourism is for people across the world and I want to know I am contributing to the sustainability of the industry.

I graduated with a BA Geography degree from the University of Plymouth, completing my final year dissertation on the sustainability of accommodation providers in South Devon. I completed the GSTC Sustainable Tourism Training Programme in the various COVID lockdowns and then secured a job at Plymouth City Council in their Natural Infrastructure and Sustainable Transport Teams.

In September 2021, I began a part-time MSc in Responsible Tourism Management at Leeds Beckett. Usually in my free-time I’ll be by the sea, whether that’s swimming or paddleboarding.
