Amanda is a specialist in communications and public relations. She moved to Ullapool 5 years ago after many years visiting the area on hillwalking holidays. After working for the UK government’s waste delivery body on campaigns such as Recycle Now and Love Food Hate Waste, she was inspired to focus primarily on environmental issues. Her clients have since included Zero Waste Scotland, British Glass, the Ethical Tea Partnership, Global Action Plan, the Marine Conservation Society and plastic waste lumber specialists Plastecowood. She expanded her interest with a BSc in Environmental Studies, graduating in 2018. In 2017 she also trained as a business and life coach and now works with individuals and teams both in the UK and internationally. Previously a volunteer Director with BroomPower, Amanda joined the UCT Board in 2018 and co-chairs the Environment & Sustainability Working Group.
