About Marise

I joined the NBN Trust in June 2023 in the role of Finance and Business Officer.  I am a qualified chartered accountant and a fellow of ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales).

My first degree was in Natural Sciences, followed by my MSc Biological and Forensic Anthropology.  I am excited to be working with a team who, together with others, aims to reverse the biodiversity crisis.

For the past four years, I have been the Chair of a Maternity Voices Partnership in Cheshire.  Through co-production and listening to and amplifying the voices of under-represented communities and the wider public, we have made a difference to the care and services received by women and families in the local area.

I love seeing new places and travelling with my family.  I also enjoy experiencing the seasons and observing changes in the natural environment, whether that be in my garden or further afield.
