I am currently working in the Flood Resilience Team in East Anglia. Within the team I focus on Engagement and GIS. I work on education and community engagement with local flood schemes. Often I will be out in schools educating children on the risk and hazards associated with flooding and how to keep themselves safe. Another significant part of my role is working with GIS and supporting our technical specialist.
I currently work for the Environment Agency in the Flood Resilience Team and as the Flood Resilience Engagement Advisor I cover Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.
As part of my role I work with high risk communities to help them become more resilient to flooding. My area has a huge coast line so I tend to target coastal communities that are at risk of tidal flooding and coastal erosion.
I spend a lot of time with young people in schools to talk about the dangers and how they can be prepared.
