After almost five years in Spain, I finally moved back home, settling into an inner-city suburb within South Australia’s capital, Tarntanya / Adelaide.
In 2017, I completed my Permaculture Design Certificate with The Food Forest – and gently (perhaps unwittingly) set my life on a new path.
I spent the next three years working to save vulnerable animals with RSPCA South Australia, leading the charity’s communications and fundraising arm.
But in my spare time, my mind was stretching and growing into a whole new space, as I began to learn the beautiful art of growing food organically, while embracing a more sustainable lifestyle at every turn.
In mid-2020, the planets aligned and I scored my dream job with Milkwood, a permaculture social enterprise teaching skills for living more ethically and sustainably. Most recently, I moved to Grow It Local, where I headed up marketing nationally for these fabulous folk two days a week.
In early 2024, I decided to go all-in with my own business once again. I now offer my Digital Marketing Strategist expertise to small and sustainable businesses, plus write a monthly gardening column for ABC Everday and a regular climate change column for Guardian Australia. You’ll often hear me on ABC Radio’s National Weekend Evenings program too.
(Yes, I choose to work part-time and yes, it’s great.)
My life now revolves around permaculture, sustainability and local food – and working with people and businesses making positive changes for our mighty planet.
