Dr Marie Doole Founder/Director Mātaki Environmental Throughout a wide-ranging career in local and central government, the not-for-profit environmental sector, academia and private consulting Marie has developed a unique and multi-faceted understanding of the key challenges in environmental protection and the management of regulatory systems.

She is known for innovative research and analysis and has produced a range of high impact books and reports over her career in addition to operational roles. She is not afraid of challenging topic areas, complex issues or breaking new ground in a discipline. When Marie is not working, she can usually be found in the ever-expanding gardens and orchard of the Masterton lifestyle block she shares with her young family; husband Aaron and two little daughters.
