Meet the founder
“Hi there, my name is Hollie. I am the founder and main educator of elasmo. Since a very young age i’ve had a connection and love for Nature. Through-out life I have wanted to be a zoologists, a teacher, a vet, a midwife. After moving from England in 2008 I found myself studying graphic design at the university of Newcastle, here I found a passion for character design, infographics and story telling, I realised that I could combine a skill in design with my love for nature and passion to bring about positive environmental change.
I believe growth, on an individual and global scale, is fuelled by a love for learning. elasmo was created to help us better understand the world around us, deepening our connection to ourselves, each other and the planet. I want to create a safe and nurturing organisation where all students feel empowered to follow their curiosities, to express creativity, to innovate without fear of failure, to collaborate and bring about sustainable and positive change that will ensure a sustainable and prosperous future for all life on Earth.
I want all my students to know life is an exciting journey full of endless possibilities - knowing they are enough.
Our mission is to be a reputable environmental education organisation - securing a sustainable and bright future for our children through education, empowerment and creativity.
