 I am beyond excited to be starting as Co-Tumu Whakarae (CEO) at a new education innovation trust: Kia Kotahi Ako (as one learning). Watch this space as we kick things off in partnership with other Edmund Hilary Fellows to create space and opportunity for education innovation and learning for all across Aotearoa New Zealand.

I thrive in challenging and varied environments, building effective teams and collaborating with others to generate social impact. My skills and experience have led to be being accepted into renowned programmes, including the Edmund Hilary Fellowship and WISE (World Innovation Summit for Education) Emerging Leaders.

I'm extremely proud to have played a key role in scaling LRTT, a global teacher movement that empowers educators to get every child learning through quality education. LRTT provides in-service teacher training on evidence-based approaches for 3000 teachers each year across 11 countries. I have been involved with LRTT since 2014, first as a Fellow in Nepal then leading teams in Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda before becoming a Director in 2016.

Prior to this, I gained an understanding of education policy and championed a holistic approach to education through coordinating a UK Government plan to improve school food. As a Teach First 2012 Ambassador, I taught Geography in London and organised many field trips to engage students with new ideas and places. I have a Geography and Education Degree from Jesus College, Cambridge and a Master's in Education and International Development from UCL, London.

I also spend as much time as possible enjoying all the outdoor adventure sports that come from living in New Zealand, including getting the multisport bug after completing Coast to Coast 2020. I love exploring new countries by bicycle but making the most of cycling in New Zealand for now.
