About Mandy

I have worked for the National Biodiversity Network Trust since December 2004 and am now its longest serving staff member! It’s a great organisation to work for and the work we do, the people we work with and the data we host is becoming ever more important to help tackle the biodiversity crisis.

As for me, I have always adored nature – what’s not to love about it?! – but prior to joining the Trust, my background was in retail marketing and communications at the Boots Company’s head office in Nottingham, where I was Operations Manager for the Baby Business Centre.

My love of nature has continued to grow. I am incredibly lucky to have travelled widely and seen some amazing wildlife around the world. I am, however, equally thrilled to observe nature on my daily dog walk with Lewis my Sproodle in the Leicestershire countryside, recording what I see on iNaturalistUK of course!.

I still relish my role at the NBN Trust as much as I did 19 years ago and am enjoying developing our communications in new ways to support our five year Strategy.
