Izzy joined the Foundation in April 2021 after graduating with a BSc in Physical Geography and MSc in Geographic Information and Climate Change. Following a year of working in the Foundation, Izzy worked within the water industry, before returning to the Wye & Usk Foundation in September 2022 as a Senior Natural Capital Officer.

She has experience in working on a range of environmental projects from co-ordination to delivery, including the planning and development of constructed wetlands, HRA monitoring and riverine habitat improvement schemes. She is also involved in other project areas including natural flood management, biodiversity enhancement and spatial data mapping, with experience in conducting river habitat surveys, biodiversity net gain assessments, and the use of several natural capital metrics.

Her role at the Foundation involves identifying and developing opportunities to implement catchment interventions and nature-based solutions within the Wye and Usk catchments to target key environmental issues, including pollution and flooding, to benefit both people and nature.
