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 has facilitated a variety of GLT programmes, as well as volunteering with the local Community Wild space Project Forest for our Children.

Nov 2021 saw Connie promoted to Step by Step coordinator, our programme for young adults with SEND.
