Hi I'm Ella
Very excited to start this course :)
I am currently a project manager in the marketing sector, looking to switch industries.
I grew up in the countryside, surrounded by incredible wildlife. When I was a child I wanted to become a vet or a zoo keeper but I somehow ended up working in event management, then moving into project management for a marketing agency!
I am definitely an explorer at heart, and have travelled to many parts of the world to observe wildlife and nature. After my degree, I travelled to Mexico to volunteer at a dog sanctuary for 6 months and have also embarked on trips such as trekking in the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil, supporting elephant rehabilitation in Thailand and working on a farm rescuing wild animals in central Australia.
I love hiking, surfing, cycling and horse-riding. I have a poodle cross called Woody who comes with me on various adventures in the countryside.
I am keen to kick start a career in conservation and finally make my passion into an occupation.
I am really looking forward to the course and meeting everyone!
