Charlotte gained a BSc in Agricultural Sciences from Nottingham University and an MSc in Land Resource Management from Silsoe College, Cranfield University before starting her career in conservation with the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust. Her first job in Yorkshire was as Countryside Stewardship Adviser for Humberside, a role which gave her the chance to bring together conservation and farming. In 2000 Charlotte became a Senior Adviser and progressed to project management of land management schemes then more recently, Natural England’s work relating to Sites of Special Scientific Interest. Charlotte is now leading our input on the Wharfe Catchment Management Plan.
In her free time Charlotte volunteers for the Scout Association in Wharfedale and West Yorkshire, enjoys making jewellery, walking her dog, gardens sporadically and supports her son playing rugby at Baildon.
