Lancaster University where I read BSc (Hons) Environmental Science (Hydrogeology) and achieved a 1st class degree.
What made you choose this career path?
I am from a military background and was lucky to live in some wonderful places, which nurtured a love of the world around me. When I was 11 years old, I was fortunate to go to a middle school that taught environmental studies, which included a week’s residential at Juniper Hall, near Dorking. My experience stayed with me and when I returned to education as a mature student, it steered me toward Environmental Science and ultimately sustainability.
