I have always loved nature. Being out in the forest or in the ocean makes me incredibly happy and gives me peace. Almost all of my most wonderful and powerful experiences in life were in nature. These memories give me the drive and determination to stand up for the environment and I love to share that passion.
I started working in the environmental field at a green political foundation. After university, I joined an environmental fiscal policy think tank and organised students to hold lectures on eco-social market economy and sustainability at universities all over Germany.
Since being in Australia, I got involved with The Wilderness Society and their community organising program and zero deforestation campaign. After working as an organiser with the union United Voice, I joined the Australian Marine Conservation Society as community organiser on the Fight for our Reef campaign.
I am a firm believer of people power. I know that every individual’s effort to protect our natural world makes a difference and that together we have the power to create change and win campaigns. I am really excited to build grassroots power for our reef and oceans.
