"What I enjoy most about my role is meeting people and being out in the field. I have a passion for agriculture, environment and community, which I carry with me into this role. I think the value of the Refreshing Rivers Program will be seen in action through listening and learning from our community."

"We have one of the last populations of Southern Pygmy Perch in the Murray catchment and it has been teetering for the last 10 years. Getting the whole community involved and keeping our creeks and waterways functioning and resilient as our natural and production systems adapt to climate changes, can give these struggling species the fighting chance they need."

Favourite plant or animal: Shield Shrimp (Triops australiensis)

"There are not too many jobs where you can physically see the difference you have made. I enjoy working with landholders to design their projects and I love going back and revisiting sites to see how these projects are making a difference to the way landholders manage their land."

Favourite plant or animal: Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus)

Refreshing Rivers Program Manager
Murray Local Land Services

“I am excited to be managing such an ambitious, community centred program, and to work alongside local people to make real positive steps to improve the health of our rivers. Water quality is so important for agriculture, recreation including fishing, aesthetics of the local area, tourism opportunities and community pride. Healthy waterways equal healthy land, healthy communities, and healthy people!”
