ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

I’m ActionAid’s European Campaigns Co-ordinator

I work with ActionAid’s offices around Europe to develop and implement our campaigns, and co-ordinate our Brussels campaigning work on biofuels.

I’m fortunate enough to work with some amazing people across ActionAid’s Europe region, but also to travel globally and meet inspiring anti-poverty campaigners from all over the world.

When I’m not working you’ll find me out running or in the gym.
