our project team
The Tread Lightly Caravan project has been developed by Gael Ogilvie and Andrea Kendall, with lots of help from advisors and supporters. Gael has more than 25 years experience as an environmental consultant and is providing overall direction for the project. Andrea is an experienced project manager and is looking after day-to-day project development and managing sub consultants. The caravan is staffed by experienced teachers who are passionate about environmental education and about hands-on learning experiences. Our principal educators are Shanthie Walker, Kelly Robertson and Sarah Thornhill who are supported during school visits by a team of educational assistants. Stephen Black is conducting follow up school visits to investigate the ongoing effects of the learning that took place during the TLC experience. Monique Russell is our education liason who also looks after our websites.
Gael, Andrea and the teachers are supported by Rosi Speakman who keeps a watchful eye on everything administrative, in particular, our financial accounts, and Alice Andrew, an environmental consultant who is our Business Development Manager.
