I've always been curious about how the stories we tell reflect and influence our experience of the natural world and our place within it. While working on my literature degree, I minored in environmental studies and focused my honours thesis on ecopoetics, a multidisciplinary approach to literary criticism that seeks to elucidate the nuanced relationships between stories and ecology. I continue to explore and write about these topics both critically and creatively through the lenses of ethnobotany, cultural ecology, sustainability and community resilience,often in collaboration with an international community of teachers, activists, artists and scientists.
Increasingly, I am contributing my skills to broader and more far-reaching projects as a content and language editor. For the past two years, I have worked extensively as a freelance English editor to the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe. Highlights have included editing publications for the Division of Information, Evidence, Research and Innovation's cultural contexts of health project, and for the WHO Healthy Cities Network.
