Jennifer Bryant – Programs Manager
After nearly a decade of intensive care nursing in Australia and Ireland, Jen threw it all in to care for the environment, completing a Master in Environment and Sustainability at Monash University. With a real passion for growing food in cities, she has most recently worked in local government managing community gardens.
As a child of the 80’s, Jen grew up with prominent Keep Australia Beautiful messages and the fun of identifying Tidy Towns on family road trips through her native South Australia and beyond. She is overwhelmingly excited to be joining the Keep Australia Beautiful team, celebrating the achievements of Australia’s sustainable champions in the National Sustainable Cities, Tidy Towns and Clean Beaches awards.
A recent migrant from Melbourne, Jen is enjoying Sydney’s superior weather and is eagerly awaiting summer on the beach. Away from work she likes nothing better than reading Australian fiction, exploring new eating spots, lying around in parks and doing yoga. She aspires to achieve an unsupported headstand or full transcendence – whichever comes first.
