Program & Operations Manager
Anita was born in Germany, into a military family, where she embarked on a semi nomadic lifestyle, moving to new places and schools every 2 years. Her childhood was spent outdoors, climbing, sailing, canoeing, camping, hiking, running and flying gliders as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
In the early 90’s Anita made the move to UK, where she ultimately worked for three major airlines as cabin crew; a career that fed and enabled her wanderlust, until she finally came in to land, settling by the sea on the South Coast to raise a family. Living here for the last 22 years straight, her affection for the area sees life closely linked to the health and state of our seas, oceans and beaches, having built a huge passion for her local marine environment and participating with its conservation.
In the course of raising a young family, she has trained and qualified as a Yoga and Movement therapist and worked to aid patients in pain management and post operative rehabilitation. As an educator. Anita has taught a range of subjects up to Local Education Authority standards and developed courses in several subjects.
In joining Pangaea, she aims to bring her experience of project management, operations and customer service skills in line with her desire and need to protect our marine habits and help to further the aims and goals of our organisation.
