I joined LDA Design as a Director in Environmental Planning in 2023. I am a landscape planner with over 25 years of experience in strategic landscape planning, landscape character assessments, protected landscapes and LVIAs through to sustainability appraisal, recreation and tourism studies and facilitation. I have led on high-profile projects, requiring imaginative design solutions. Projects close to my heart include working overseas in Ghana and Montenegro on national projects, masterplanning and developing a long-term landscape strategy for an award-winning large-scale restoration project through to more recent work on Aquind Interconnector and Drax Power Station.

I believe strongly in landscape-led designs which are developed collaboratively with robust design principles and parameters at the outset, and where the community is engaged.

In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, gardening, walking, swimming and doing up our old farmhouse.


My favourite walk is ...

Across Backwell Hill where, from higher ground, there are panoramic views of the Severn Estuary and, on a clear day, the Brecon Beacons. The path then leads to a large-leaved veteran lime, celebrated locally and which has a magical character.

The last book I read was ...

‘When the Crawdads Sing’ by Delia Owens, which has wonderful evocative descriptions of the landscape and biodiversity set in the marshlands of the deep south of the USA.
