How IAE Inspired Me:
The expedition gave me the ability to bridge conversations about climate change and other environmental issues with community members, private and public sector representatives. My work today requires the same set of skills -- translating various requirements, policy impacts, and bridging competing priorities.
What I am doing now:
Currently, I am conducting workshops on building personal branding within sustainability. My career is focused on working with Asia's largest companies as they comply, communicate, and market sustainability requirements.

IAE 2011 was a transformative, life-changing event for me. While I was already in the environmental industry and have been communicating on the protection of our environment since 1989, the journey with Robert and my cohort was affirmational and intensely rewarding.Learn more
The highlight of the expedition for me was definitely meeting people from around the world who are working on a wide range of solutions.Learn more

I am often asked about my first impression of Antarctica and my answer is that even the remotest place on earth is not free from human influence; it comes from the sight of whale bones and parts of a whaling boat during our first landing at Trinity island. I learned that although Antarctica didn’t have any permanent or native human population, there were vestiges of human influence everywhere.Learn more
