“If you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up from the age of 8, I would have told you that I wanted to be a writer. My multitudes of interests and skills, however, have taken me on a roundabout journey; obtaining a degree in Biodiversity and Ecology, and Ethnobotany.
Through this journey, I have developed a passion for the environment, particularly the functioning of natural ecosystems, evolutionary ecology and human-ecosystem relations.
I started working at Welgevonden Game Reserve as a Project Coordinator for a research project, but my love for writing, photography and communications could not be kept at bay, and I have since instigated the development of a media sector at the Reserve. In my capacity as Media manager, I manage the various social media feeds, create the in-house online magazine, edit reserve-related content, and manage the website and news blog.”
