NCC: Describe a typical day at work.
AS: There is no “typical” day at work; every day is different. That is what makes the job challenging and also interesting: you never know what may suddenly come up in land management, because it is largely people management. My favourite time is field season, when we are visiting properties and meeting with landowners.
