A little bit about me:
I am Amy Walsh, a Forest School Leader in-training with Jackie from Go Wild Education. I have a background in environmental education and play work. I'm a qualified Paediatric & Outdoor First Aider.
I love being creative, experimenting with new ideas and collaborations, and being outdoors helping people to discover the magic in nature, build their confidence and learn skills to create a socially and environmentally-conscious society. When I’m not in the woods, you’ll usually find me drinking tea with my cat and rescue hens in the garden.
Previously, I studied BSc Geography at University of Exeter and MSc Education Policy & International Development at University of Bristol. I have delivered a range of engagement projects in the education, community and environmental sectors over the past 10 years.
