DDI: 04 499 0104
What do you do at TIA?
As a Sustainability Advocate, I’m here to champion and assist the industry work towards a more regenerative tourism system. We must transition to a lower carbon future and ensure that tourism benefits New Zealand communities.
What's your career background?
I’ve been involved in tourism and community development forever. I’ve enjoyed the balance of working on grass roots environmental and social projects as well as running tourism businesses.
What do you do for fun?
I love getting into the outdoors – skiing, biking and tramping. I’m also keen on hanging with friends and enjoy a good boogie on the dance floor
What’s one thing you’re doing in pursuit of sustainability?
I’m trying hard to reduce plastic packaging, but it’s so tricky at the supermarket! My current mission is creating new habits around refilling those good old glass jars.
