I have worked for the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions (and its predecessors) since 2006 and have worked on biodiversity conservation during that time with a specific focus on recovery of threatened species and communities.  I grew up on the south coast of WA in the small farming community of Jacup on a farm bordering the Fitzgerald River National Park.  During this time I developed a strong interest in the local flora and the environment. This led to the completion of a Bachelor of Science (Environmental Management) in 2003.

I started my career working on bushland regeneration, weed control and revegetation in the metro area.  In 2006 I started work with the department though the graduate recruit program and moved to the wheatbelt town of Merredin to start a job as flora conservation officer which was a brilliant experience.  I moved to Busselton in 2010 and have worked in various nature conservation roles with the department since.  Working on the recovery of the Busselton ironstone threatened ecological community and associated endemic flora has been a highlight of my time in the southwest.
