I was born in Somerset but have spent most of my working life living in various parts of Wales and now live in beautiful Anglesey. I have recently retired after 35 years working as a Fisheries Scientist and Environment Manager with Natural Resources Wales and its predecessor organisations. During this time I have witnessed big changes in the aquatic environment many for the better, including improved river water quality and the restoration of habitats and fish passage. However many challenges remain and I hope to use my knowledge and experience to help the Trust to work with others to continue to improve rivers and wildlife. I enjoy gardening, dog walking and, as a ‘lapsed angler’ hope to find time to do more fishing.
