Got any favourite quotes?
“Something wonderful begins to happen with the simple realization that life, like an automobile, is driven from the inside out, not the other way around.” Richard Carlson
What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?
“If you are not in the arena also getting your ass kicked, then I’m not interested in your feedback.” Brene Brown
What’s your favourite place in SA?
One of my favourite places is the Yorke Peninsula where you can bush camp on the beach, surf the coast and kayak the bay.
What’s been your proudest moment at Conservation SA?
The School Strike for Climate was a truly unifying day for our team. It solidified our personal commitment to the cause but also strengthened our team dynamics. The day was a lot of hard work, which made the hope we felt when everyone came together that much more memorable.
