Denise joined the WI Malaysia family in 2011. She holds a Bachelor degree in Environmental Science and recently, received her Masters degree in Integrated Water Management. Her work is focused on Mangrove Conservation, Rehabilitation and Wise-use but is keen to branch into Disaster Risk Reduction, Ecosystem-based Approaches and Gender Equality. She is happiest when out in the field, be it getting stuck in the mud, tripping over roots or mingling with local communities to learn about their lives and culture. She believes that everyone is responsible for the environment and that we need to put aside our differences to work towards a greater good.
