Head of Estates

Having been brought up in the countryside and now living on the beautiful South Downs, I am very aware of the inter-connectedness of food production and the natural world. There has never been a more important time for farming and nature to work hand in hand. The changes brought about by leaving the EU combined with the enormous imperative to reverse our lost biodiversity brings both challenges and opportunities for British farmers. 
What most attracted me to this role is getting stuck in with helping CRT tenants to be at the forefront of delivering a living, working countryside for wildlife and people. As a rural surveyor with many years' experience working for institutional landowners such as the National Trust, RSPB and local authorities, as well as in the private sector, I look forward to both bringing my skills and knowledge but equally to learning from CRT tenants and staff. I am a great believer in collaborative working - it is when everyone brings together their expertise and ideas with the aim of meeting a common goal that the most exciting things happen.
