What Landcare area do I look after?

In my role as a Landcare Facilitator with the East Gippsland Landcare Network (EGLN) I assist with supporting the Landcare community in the areas from Perry River in the west, the Gippsland Lakes in the south, Lakes Entrance in the east and the foothill forest interface with public private land forming the northern boundary of the EGLN.

I also assist with EGLN administrative functions and projects.

Paynesville, East Gippsland

What is my Background?

I have a strong background in Environmental Science. I completed a Bachelor of Science degree at Monash University (Clayton), with majors in Zoology, and Environmental & Conservation Biology. I also hold Diplomas in both Conservation & Land Management, and Sustainability.

My Interests & Hobbies?

Outdoor activities including bushwalking, swimming, kayaking; anything to do with the environment; socialising and having fun!

My aspirations for Landcare in East Gippsland:

To continue the great work and success(es) achieved by all EGLN members, staff and partners! I really love the opportunity to work with people who want to learn and do more to enhance our environment, practice sustainable and profitable agriculture, and right some of the wrongs of our past.
