Phoebe is a Chartered Environmentalist and Principal Environmental Consultant for Nature Positive, helping businesses and those who invest in them to manage the risks and opportunities arising from their impacts and dependence on nature.
Before that she worked for Habitat First Group for 15 years as Chief Ecologist and then as their Head of Environment & Sustainability. In this role she worked on converting former mineral extraction sites into sustainable holiday home destinations built with nature in mind.

Two of her sites were finalists in both the 2019 Ciria Big Biodiversity Challenge award and in the 2020 Landscape Institute's National Building with Nature Award.
Prior to this, Phoebe also worked in ecological consultancy both in the UK and overseas and she was a volunteer member of the UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum Europe Territories Working Group, advising on nature conservation issues on the Cyprus Sovereign Base Areas.
