Emily Morshuis Operations & Research Manager

Emily Morshuis - Operations & Research Manager

During my travels across the globe I have felt  inspired by different cultures, the natural beauty and biodiversity that the countries had to offer. These experiences only added to my desire to understand the world around me better.

I recently completed my Masters degree in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation at Imperial College London, after graduating from Queen Mary University of London in 2013 with a degree in Zoology. Before uni I had the chance to work as a field assistant in the cloud forests of Honduras and conduct biodiversity surveys in the rainforests of Brunei, Borneo. Most recently, I had the chance to carry out the research component of my MSc in the the Daintree Rainforest in North Queensland, Australia, which was a challenging, albeit extremely rewarding experience which (along with the multitude of snakes, spiders and stinging trees) I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

I believe my time at Frontier, firstly as a Group Projects Coordinator and now as the Operations and Research Manager at present has given me a valuable insight into how an NGO runs overseas conservation and community development projects. I currently manage the operations and administration of Frontier’s overseas projects, and supervise the science and research aspect of all expeditions and field projects.

Sylvie Le Group Projects Coordinator

Sylvie Le - Group Projects Coordinator

I have been addicted to travelling since I was young. I have grown up in France, and I got the chance to frequently go to Asian countries. I have also improved my English while living in America, Australia and New Zealand for a few months. Last year I volunteered in a remote Filipino village and conducted several environmental and community development projects. It was such a great humanitarian experience and I have made friends for life in such a beautiful country.

Going abroad developed my passion for discovering new cultures, meeting new people and also for the environment and wildlife.

Once back in Europe, I decided to move to London where I have found the Project Coordinator position with Frontier. Joining an NGO focusing on conservation issues and wildlife, but also on community development is very rewarding. Furthermore, I now understand how the projects are managed and coordinated, which is very interesting for me, as I would like to pursue my career in environmental projects management.

Daniel  Davies Overseas Operations Manager

Daniel Davies - Overseas Operations Manager

After completing my MSc in International Development in 2010, I joined Frontier as an Overseas Ops Intern in their London Headquarters. Follwoing a successful 6 months in the role, I was offered the amazing opportunity to head out to the Costa Rica programme as Project Coordinator. Managing the Costa Rica project for a year was one of the most amazing experiences I have had to date and I have remained forever grateful to Frontier for the opportunity.

After a few years working within renewable energy and heading to run another conservation project out in the Seychelles, I returned to London to look for a higher managerial role that would focus on remote project management of conservation and sustainable development projects. Returning to work with Frontier again was an easy decision and the role of Overseas Operations Manager was a excellent opportunity.

In my role I am responsible for managing the operations and administration of Frontier’s overseas conservation, teaching & community projects for Costa Rica, Belize, Cambodia and the Ethical Adventure Trails. My tasks includes the day to day support for the field projects including budgets, equipment, communications, procurement, staff and transportation and also comprises a large element of human resources for both the overseas projects and London HQ.

Lucia Ruggiero Partner Projects Volunter Coordinator

Lucia Ruggiero - Partner Projects Volunter Coordinator

What is your passion? I was asked this question so many times during my all life and for so long I did not how to answer it. The problem was that I focused on finding one while I always had many! Travelling, wildlife & environmental conservation, community development are my main passions.

My constant desire to travel the world and to live in a sustainable way discovering new cultures has grown within me in these last years. After graduating in Political Science & International Relations it was time for me to leave my nest. The destination? Frontier, in London.

My time at Frontier as Partner Project Volunteer Coordinator has given me a great inspiration on what I would like to achieve in the future. Working for a non-profit conservation and development NGO it is rewarding and satisfying. I really enjoy helping the others to get the best outcome from their experience and also having the chance to create new partnerships with organisations from all around the world is very stimulating.

Maddie Roach Events and Outreach Coordinator

Maddie Roach - Events and Outreach Coordinator

Being brought up in London, I have always had a desire to explore outside of the city and see what else the world had to offer. With a South African heritage and family members living from the shores of California to the bustling hub of Singapore, my passion for travel and adventure grew throughout my childhood.

I was not deterred from travel whilst studying for my Undergraduate degree in Public Relations and Communications at Sheffield Hallam University. In my summer breaks, I completed two volunteer internships, teaching and caring in orphanages in Thailand, and backpacked independently through Spain, immersing myself in the Spanish culture.

Since graduating in 2012, I have worked in both Marketing and Events Management and have lived, travelled and volunteered in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Canada and North America…and that’s not the exhaustive list!

I have come to Frontier in the hope of combining my passion for ethical travel with my interest and experience in Events and Marketing. I also hope to develop my understanding of, and gain insight, into a successful NGO.

Fernanda Baraybar Volunteer Advisor

Fernanda Baraybar - Volunteer Advisor

Coming from Peru and Venezuela I have spent my life aware of the struggles in the world. Since I was very young I enjoyed doing volunteer work with various orphanages and environmental initiatives throughout South America. I was also very lucky to complete my university studies in Switzerland in a school that promotes travel and worldwide knowledge. Visiting various countries such as South Korea, Malawi, Greece, Malaysia and more, I decided to make my passion for travelling and volunteering my career. I searched to implement my studies of marketing and events with an organization that works to help improve the world. Frontier is a great place to do both and I am extremely excited to be a part of the team!
