Helping businesses achieve their educational & development needs 
Sally has a BSc(Hons) in Zoology and a MSc in Science Communication which has enabled her to become a specialist in Land-based subjects such as animal care, zoo animal management, veterinary nursing and horticulture. She also has experience in developing programmes for other sectors, including construction, hospitality and catering, and health care. 
She is an enthusiastic and hardworking individual who is reliable at all times and assertive when necessary. She is creative, adaptable and flexible in the way that she approaches projects to ensure that all tasks are completed efficiently and effectively. This includes influencing and implementing change within the work environment. 
Sally is passionate about developing vocational educational programmes, contributing to candidates’ learning journeys (whether this onto other education programmes or employment) and how this influences and shapes the future workforce. 
Sally enjoys developing communication strategies using a wide range of verbal and written methods. Her MSc dissertation, entitled ‘How do zoos educate? An evaluation of the communication methods by zoos to educate their visitors about international conservation issues’, focussed on the communication methods and language used by UK Zoos. It evaluated the methods used against industry education standards and the zoos’ mission statements. In 2008, Sally was invited to present her research and findings at the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) symposium and provided information to her peers on how communication methods can be developed within their own collections.
