Kathleen is excited to join the team at NZGBC following a career break as a stay-at-home Mum. She has a breadth of experience in the non-profit and NGO sector.

She is formally trained as a political economist and has deep knowledge of the Sustainable Development Goals. Kathleen holds dual postgraduate degrees in international relations and development studies. Her previous work was focused in the NGO sector, where she led stakeholder engagement initiatives and built operational partnerships for impact specific to sub-Saharan Africa.

Kathleen loves the ocean and exploring Aotearoa with her family, cheering her girls on at gymnastics, reading a great book, enjoying a leisurely bike ride, and baking the perfect batch of brownies (she's happy to share her recipe!)
