14 Jan Podcast – Meeting my team: Dr Tamasin Ramsay Research and Policy Adviser
What a year it’s been, and I couldn’t have done it without my incredible team. Over the next few months I’ll be taking you behind the scenes and chatting with members of my team to give you a glimpse into the work that goes on in the lead up to introducing or amending a bill or motion. In this podcast I chat with Dr Tamasin Ramsay my Research and Policy Adviser. Tam who I often say “has a brain the size of a planet” does an incredible job in not only researching and providing advice on bills and motions relating to my key campaigns, but also in identifying opportunities to amend proposed government legislation so there is a recognition of how that legislation will impact non-human animals and changes are made so that the legislation reduces animal cruelty and results in positive changes to their lives. Tam is playing a critical role in ensuring Victorian law evolves to ensure non-human animals are viewed as sentient subjects, rather than objects.
