I have had a rich back ground working in the conservation sector and on expeditions in both the Amazon and West Africa. I first same to Embercombe in early 2014, when I realised that I had never completely followed my dream and longing to live in a community and have a closer relationship to the land and nature.

My experience of Volunteering at Embercombe in 2014 was an incredible 3 months, of deep friendship and beautiful experiences. After my 3 months I decided to set up a business helping school improve outdoor learning and study for a Masters. When the job came up as Education Manager I was excited to apply and now love living and working here.

Embercombe is a place where real transformation and connection happens. I am privileged to be part of the educational programs here, it’s an honor to be involved in connecting people back to themselves and the natural environment.

What does Embercombe mean to you?
