Hi There, I'm Julie D.
I am an Associate Programme Officer on the Business & Biodiversity team at UNEP-WCMC. I have been working at the Centre for almost a year now and am currently managing some small projects. I have done so in the past, working as an Environmental Consultant, on an ad-hoc basis without any formal training. I am looking forward to learning a standardized process to run projects, particularly tips & tricks (i.e. available tools, websites, apps etc.) to make the journey efficient and easy to track, the decisions to make at project inception and how to maintain 'control' as best you can while recognizing we are often on constrained timelines & budgets.
A bit about myself. Being from the Pacific North West, I like to spend time in the intertidal, identifying marine invertebrates. I love jellyfish, nudies (nudibranchs) and seastars :)
