Welcome Louise Owen – NFMV Volunteer

NatureFiji-MareqetiViti has recently welcomed Louise Owen to assist with our procedures and administrative system…and if she has time, business development.

This work is supported by the Arcadia/BirdLife Conservation Partnership Fund.

Louise hails from Wales. She has a Ph.D. in Mycology but had been working for nearly ten years in the private sector in the UK, before she took a break to travel overland to Australia.

In the UK Louise worked in the utilities sector. She managed small teams involved in business/commercial analysis and improvement and more recently as Business Analysis Manager for the Inexus Group.

Louise comes to Fiji after a stint volunteering with the Seed Bank at
the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens where she admits to being happy
getting her hands dirty and getting out into the bush.

So we are very fortunate that Louise thinks that NFMV is a worthwhile
organization to spend some time with and we hope she can help us put
together an efficient administrative system.
