Helen graduated from the University of East Anglia in 2005 armed with a degree in Environmental Sciences. After a few years working in unrelated subjects, she remembered her passion and interest lay in conservation and she returned to UEA to top up her knowledge with a graduate diploma in Ecology. During her second run at UEA, she was presented with the chance to go to Egypt with Opwall in 2009. She went, had an amazing time and was lucky enough to join the full time office staff in January 2010 as part of the school sales team.
Helen is now responsible for overseeing the schools bookings for the UK and guiding students and teachers through the process, including group travel, until their expedition. She has also taken up entomology and enjoys teaching others about the wonders of pollinators and other insects. Her Opwall adventures have taken her to Egypt, Honduras, Madagascar, Greece, Mexico (and West Sussex) and she is always looking forward to the next one.
