Emma Burns PlantNetwork Administrator

Emma Burns

Emma is the PlantNetwork Administrator and works behind the scenes and alongside Mercy to ensure that our membership systems and processes are supported and kept up to date and that our social media is ticking over. Having worked within administration for over 10 years, she has also developed her own membership and community and brings the skills gained to her role at PlantNetwork. When she is not at her desk, Emma can be found outdoors, often with a camera in hand, hiking throughout the Peak District and capturing images of nature in all its beauty!
