Verity is working as the project co-ordinator for the Propel project at Cornwall Marine Network, based at their offices in Falmouth. After undertaking a degree in Geography at the University of Exeter, Verity studied her MSc in ‘Climate Change and Sustainable Development’ at De Montfort University in Leicester. This has seen her undertake a co-ordination role for theMarine Offshore Renewables (MOR) Group as well as a significant piece of research through engaging with local marine businesses into the skills required by businesses working in or with the potential to work in the developing Marine Renewable Energy Sector in Cornwall during her time at Cornwall Marine Network. This continuing interest in the field of sustainability has seen her develop a passion for furniture ‘up-cycling’ in her spare time. Verity has grown up and continues to live in West Cornwall, enjoying its locality, particularly its cliffs and beaches and is very much looking forward to working with Cornish marine businesses within ‘Propel’ to support the continued growth of the maritime sector within the County.
