Joanna Atherfold Finn is a local author and tutor.

Her first book, Watermark, a collection of coastal short fiction, was published by Simon & Schuster in 2018. Participating in Plastic Free July and having personal exposure to the plastics issue following a shipping container spill resulted in Joanna being far more aware of the implications of single-use plastics on our environment. She has joined Plastic Free Port Stephens to assist other like-minded people to make a difference.
I am Jodi. I am a local business woman who traded a brick and mortar business to pursue a new passion and inspire positive change. Growing up in Port Stephens has given me a strong connection to our local land, ocean and people.
I don’t claim to know everything about environmental issues or solutions but I don’t want to do nothing. We cannot afford to!
I do know that every little bit counts and education & solutions are at the core of positive movement. Being a part of Plastic Free Port Stephens is a way to proactively inspire change. I’m in! Who else is in??
