Career overview

Her true passion is wildlife conservation, ecology and practical habitat conservation. She feels that she has the best job in the world at Brackenhurst, because she gets to teach and inspire students both indoors and outdoors, about a subject that she loves on a stunning estate with plenty of wildlife.

Becca feels that there is no better place in the area to study land-based subjects, than Brackenhurst because of the wonderful working estate with many habitats and wildlife. Becca says “We are one big family and the atmosphere at Brack is always positive.”
