After completing her BSc in psychology, Connie began work as a teaching assistant at a local special school, then as a mentor for a local charity supporting young adults with learning difficulties.

It was whilst supporting a young man attending GLT that she developed her passion for outdoor learning and the mental health advantages of working outside.

Connie completed her Level 3 Forest School Practitioner Award with Green Light Trust in 2016.

Having joined the Trust as a member of staff in early 2017, Connie now facilitates a variety of GLT programmes, as well as volunteering with the local Community Wild space Project Forest for our Children.
