About Geanie Cresswell
Fascinated by the potential of words to create meaningful change, Geanie read English Literature and History at the University of Leeds – this introduced her to environmental fiction. Here, exploring humanity’s increasingly complicated relationship with the natural world, she became preoccupied with how we can do better to preserve and protect our planet. Geanie is excited to be starting her career in conservation at Synchronicity Earth.
Her background is in charity communications and PR, with experience working in a busy, national news desk on life-saving safety campaigns as well as community-based projects using letter-writing to tackle loneliness.
Happiest when in nature, Geanie took a few years out to live amongst Australia and New Zealand’s wildlife, surrounded by mountains and oceans. More recently she assisted a giant salamander programme while camping across Japan, but her travels have also included becoming a yoga instructor, working on a sea turtle conservation project in Kefalonia, and trekking through a North Sumatran rainforest to glimpse orangutans.
