About

I have been lucky enough to be selected for the 5th cohort of Homeward Bound, a global leadership program which aims to up-skill 1000 women in STEMM (over 10 years) to become the movers, shakers and role models of positive change for our planet.

With an eye on climate change as a major threat to our global home, the 12 month program culminates in a voyage to Antarctica in November 2020. During this journey the 75 women selected this year (including myself) will foster lasting collaborations and build a sense of self whilst discovering their own place in this massive initiative. The experience is said to be life-changing.

Fundraising is a massive part of this journey. I have set up this page as a means of communicating my vision for what I hope to achieve in this program to those I want to effectively support as a leader - namely the ACT community. I believe that the ACT has an important role to play in advocating for best-practice environmental stewardship on a world stage. With the combined support of our academics, our politicians, our land managers and our incredibly engaged community volunteers I have no doubt we can continue to make a real impact on the way the world operates. And I'd like to be a part of that.

For those who support me on this mission, I can't thank you enough...

You’re already such a role model and ecology superstar, and exactly the kind of leader we need to influence positive change here in the ACT. Go Mel!!

Incredible person, brain and leader. I am so in awe of her ability to use evidence-based science to collaborate with land managers and speak to executives types and get sh*t done. Imagine how good she’ll be when she is through this? If possible too be better? How much better off will Canberra region be? It’s science. It will be glorious. And we will all live in a better place because we supported her through this.
