Marion Briggs

Marion joined the HealthBeacon team as their Sustainability Project Manager. A passionate environmentalist and sustainability advocate, she recently graduated from the Trinity MBA, where the highlight for her was the opportunity to interview the former President of Ireland and climate justice advocate Mary Robinson for an environmental event that she had coordinated.

She comes from a business background, having started and ran multiple businesses in the horse industry and NGO sector. In her spare time, she volunteers with the Irish NGO, Friends of the Earth, where she is now Chair. Through Friends of the Earth she has gone to the annual UN Conference of the Parties (COP), where she was liaison to the Irish government, other NGOs and the private sector.

She enjoys hiking and gardening with her kids and husband, cooking, playing with their pets (dog, cat, tortoise and snake), as well as occasionally jamming with her neighbour who plays a mean fiddle!
