Ranger Profile: Louise Murray
My name is Louise Murray and I am the Social Media Content Manager. Nature and wildlife has always been in my heart from as far back as I can remember. I grew up knowing all about it and experiencing what our lovely country could offer us.
I started my studies in psychology but once my studies were finished, I decided to follow a dream and decided I never wanted that “what if” feeling in my life. I am thilled to say that I could not have made a better decision, I am so excited everyday about what my job can present me and not only on the animal front, but from the people who come and visit Sabi Sabi. How special it is to be able to share and be part of the memeories and experiences.
I am an amateur photographer at best, but I have always been fascinated about the idea and how you can capture such special moments in one frame. I love to take picutes and try capture things in a different perspective and what better place than Sabi Sabi to help me tweak my interests. I am excited to improve myself in this hobby and share the wonders of this place with our followers.
