Catherine is a naturalist and global expedition leader, pursuing her passion for effective conservation through independent and collaborative expedition work in the most remote areas of the world. She has 25 years’ experience working in all manner of terrains, often with her children in tow. She now designs conservation expeditions for women to assist in the mitigation of elephant/human conflict with rural communities in the Southwestern area of Namibia where desert adapted elephants roam freely, opening up her world of remote exploration to those who wish to push their own mental and physical boundaries, and challenge themselves. 

She recognises the importance of grassroots conservation and has worked alongside some of the world's most pioneering biodiversity scientists in an effort to further our understanding of the natural world. To facilitate the many aspects of her life, she is a Qualified Field Guide of Southern Africa, a PADI Divemaster, and Reef Check trainer, Day Skipper, yoga teacher, TEDx Speaker, published author and an ambassador for EHRA supporting endangered desert adapted elephants.
