Helen joined the Essex and Suffolk Rivers Trust as Director in September 2022
Helen has over 20 years’ experience in the environmental field, working in academic, commercial and charity sectors.
Most recently Helen was Assistant Director of Consultancy at the National Trust, leading conservation work across the East of England in natural and built heritage for 10 years. This included directing a large-scale river catchment project and working on the board of the National Trust’s Riverlands programme. Previously Helen worked with a wide range of clients in her role as Director for London and South East Environment Group at RHDHV.
In her early career she worked as one of the first geomorphologists in an engineering consulting firm promoting working with nature in river and coastal management. Throughout her academic and working life Helen has been focused on the restoration of wildlife and habitats. After being so inspired by early experiences in our rivers and on our seashores, Helen is also passionate about ensuring people and communities have access to nature.
We wish Helen a warm welcome and look forward to working with her to expand and develop ESRT and the work that we do!
