Get in touch

I’m a Senior Principal and a strategic environmental and social advisor with over 25 years’ industry experience. I have 13 years’ experience in delivering Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) for complex oil and gas, mining, energy and infrastructure projects, with a particular focus on linear infrastructure.

I’ve delivered projects that have required extensive stakeholder engagement in rural and remote areas, been an expert witness in independent inquiries and consulted with local, state and federal government agencies. My industry experience enables me to bring a unique perspective to ESIA. I’ve developed innovative solutions to deal with uncertainty in unconventional gas development and been a catalyst for best practice ESIA through evolutionary steps towards fully integrated impact assessment. Each of these initiatives has delivered measurable benefits to our clients.

I’m proud to be a leader in ESIA and to be building on Coffey's strong tradition of delivering innovative solutions to complex issues. Our approach to ESIA is built around intelligent risk – enabling us to deliver successful outcomes for our clients. I’m proud of the work we do in assisting our clients to achieve approval for their projects, and ensuring long term project sustainability.
