Independent Environmental Consultant
Environmental consultant with experience in the field of development and project design focused on sustainable living and climate change adaptability. Upon graduating with a degree in Environmental Sciences I relocated to Spain for a few months where I interned for an NPO. There I had gathered information and experience in project design and development for non-profitable projects. Within returning to South Africa I'd taken courses on Project management, A UN development course focused on the role of women and their impact on a sustainable future for their communities. I've since worked on writing, editing, and research on proposals submitted to GCF. Research on the country/ies the project would be developed in. Their current vulnerable state due to climate change and other issues these countries face; such as poverty, gender issues, education, child development, and healthcare. I’ve also worked on solo proposals, completed, and submitted to the GCF for clients.
I've worked on Climate Compliance reports and sustainable solutions for companies/ individuals who have come across environmental issues.
