Madeline Lafferty  (ASCEND Director)

Hi, I’m Madeline! I have been working with ICI for three years now and have loved every minute of it. Working with children and enriching their lives is my passion. Outside of work I’m an avid reader and exotic pet educator. I have two rescue parrots that I spend most of my free time caring for. I enjoy hiking and playing  various instruments including oboe and electric bass.

Sam Jones (ASCEND Assistant)

Hello! I’m Sam and this will be my second year working with the ASCEND program. ICI is full of brilliant children and I greatly enjoy having the chance to engage with them. Outside of work I enjoy spending my time in nature and working on creative projects. I often incorporate my ecological knowledge and artistic skills into activities with the kids.
