What do you do?

I provide support both internally (to the TN staff team) and externally (to Transitioners, the wider public). I respond to general enquiries and cover HR admin and office management. I also get involved in projects such as the production and distribution of Transition books and films.

What do you find most surprising or delightful about working in the field of Transition?

In a world (according to our national media institutions) dictated by a daily narrative of death, drama and fear, I find Transition a refreshing and positive beacon in the smog! I am continuously delighted by the increasing number of Transition beacons across the globe, in diverse countries and cultures, all adopting and adapting the Transition model in creative ways to suit their own communities. I am delighted every time I see the latest Transition groups self-registered on our website and I particularly love supporting and connecting those new to Transition.
