Naomi has worked as an environment and sustainability professional since 2015 in a range of roles with not-for-profits, private industry, state and local governments in regional, remote and metropolitan locations. She holds a Bachelor in Environmental Management and a Certificate IV in Project Management.
Since returning to metropolitan Adelaide in 2017, Naomi has worked predominately for local government, providing a policy and education perspective on a broad range of sustainability issues. The large portfolio of environment and sustainability in local government includes sustainable and active transport, and over the past two years, the focus has been on shared micro-mobility. Naomi has taken an active role in her local council for setting up a framework for and trialling a local shared micro-mobility scheme for e-bikes and e-scooters. She has also been actively involved in planning for walking and cycling infrastructure for the council area and encouraging staff to lead by example by using alternative transport modes (e.g. walk, cycle and public transport).
Naomi’s predominant mode of transport is her bicycle which she uses to travel to work, work meetings, social engagements and shopping. She is also a keen walker and enjoys hiking and walking in nature and around the city.
