"I'm most inspired when I'm learning a new skill or interacting with the natural world. I believe if we apply ethical consideration to whatever we do, things will probably turn out alright."
Charlotte recalls at age six, having a moment of shared understanding with a cooped-up elderly chicken in a factory farm, and realising not all was right with the world. With values firmly entrenched, Charlotte’s curious nature has led her to all corners of the globe: She's worked on feature films in Europe and rap videos in Rwanda, produced digital media in London and tutored piano in Sydney. Most recently she's returned to her roots of jandals, feijoas and hobbits, to coordinate a string of successful programmes within Wellington's burgeoning social enterprise sector.
Affectionately known as our team’s skillionaire, Charlotte makes sure everyone who comes into contact with Kiwi Connect feels like a well-nourished rockstar. Leading the planning and operations of Kiwi Connect’s annual New Frontiers festival, she makes complex events look effortless, turns big ideas into real-life experiences, and ensures the Kiwi Connect team is always leading with heart.
