Our Team

Nicole Gullan

Nicole grew up in Zimbabwe, where she developed a love for the natural world. Studying for a Biology degree at the University of Bristol gave her a chance to carry out ecology surveys for the first time, particularly bat and fox surveys, which she really enjoyed.

Nicole attended Arbtech’s ASSET training course in 2019 and decided that Arbtech was the only company she wanted to work for. It took some time, but her commitment paid off and she was asked to join the team in March 2020. She is loving her new role at Arbtech so far and she gets a great deal of satisfaction from helping our clients get their planning permission quickly and painlessly, while helping to protect the natural world.

Outside of work, Nicole is a keen reader of both fiction and nonfiction books; she aims to read 100 books in 2020. She loves to cook for family and friends, speak Spanish, and owns far too many house plants.
