Board - Non-executive Director
Marie (she/her) is a mum, a coral ecologist and polar expeditioner whose first-hand experience of climate impacts in the natural world led her to climate campaigning and community organising since 2012. Marie co-founded Australian Parents for Climate Action in 2019 and was the founding Chair of the Board until 2023, when she stepped aside to make more time for family matters. She continues as a valued Non-executive Director.
Marie is an impact investor, shareholder advocate and climate spokesperson. She was awarded a 2022 Pro Bono Australia Impact 25 Award for her impact through Australian Parents for Climate Action, and a 2019 Gecko (Gold Coast and Hinterland) Environment Council Award for her deep support of the Gold Coast School Strike 4 Climate team.
Marie is proudly a first generation Australian to refugee and migrant parents, grateful to be living and working on beautiful unceded Kombumerri Country on the Gold Coast, and pays respect to Kombumerri elders past and present - the true saltwater people of this region.
