PASSIONATE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT, JADE IS A PROBLEM SOLVER WHO WORKS WELL UNDER PRESSURE
With a Masters in Science (Hons), a post graduate Diploma in Science and a Bachelor of Science, Jade joined the 4Sight Ecology team in January 2019.
Her previous experience includes producing coastal marine assessments of environmental effects, contributing to ongoing freshwater and soil monitoring compliance schemes, asbestos clearances, and air monitoring and hazardous materials surveys. In addition to this, she also has experience in occupational hygiene through mould and toxin surveys.
Interestingly, she has also worked as Interpretative Staff for the Goat Island Marine Discovery Centre where she engaged with the public to discuss ongoing marine research at Leigh Marine Laboratory. She was also a volunteer researcher for Matiatia FYI, where she performed a biological assessment of the planktonic diversity of Matiatia Bay at Waiheke Island using light traps as a baseline prior to a proposed marina.
Jade is an excellent leader with the capacity to delegate tasks whilst maintaining the highest quality assurance and management procedures. She relishes the prospect of field work and gaining experience in diverse disciplines, and has the ability to analyse data efficiently and effectively to produce detailed reports.
Like most of us here 4Sight, she is a lover of the outdoors and when she’s not surfing, she’s a competent diver with experience working on projects as a scientific diver.
