Helen lives in Scotland and enjoys getting onto the water and into the hills as much as possible. She studied Oceanography with Marine Biology and since 2001 has worked in the renewable energy industry. Her decision to work in renewables was driven by a passion to make a difference to our environment and the nature we coexist with. This probably comes from growing up and seeing the conflicts between nature and industry in the 1980s on the Humber Bank. Helen is now delighted to hold a global role as Head of Environment within one of the worlds largest utilities focusing on developing offshore wind energy projects and generating the electricity we need in the most sustainable way. She is keen to learn more and lead change regarding plastics pollution.
