For the past 15 years, I have been researching and writing about ethnobotany, sustainability and community resilience, inspired by and often in collaboration with an international community of teachers, activists, artists and scientists.
I have always been curious about the relationship between poetry and landscapes, and how the stories we tell ourselves influence our experience of and attitudes towards the natural world. During my undergraduate 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 relationships between writing and ecology. I continue to explore and write about these topics both critically and creatively.
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.
