The Crew


Following years of close friendship and working together, we've set up this not-for-profit to inspire change and achieve our shared vision...a community of people who connect with each other to take care of the beautiful place we live in.

Join us now!

Claire Competiello - Founder

Change starts with me. This is one of my strongest beliefs from as long as I can remember. I love to connect people together to inspire positive change in fun ways.

I bring eighteen years' professional experience in sustainability education, environmental marketing and communications and community engagement and feel fortunate to be surrounded such amazing people – together we make a difference!

Nathalie Watson - Vice President

Hi I’m Nat, I love outdoor adventures of any kind and love traveling to explore foreign cultures, food and above all, nature. Getting amongst nature is my biggest passion and I want to do my best to look after and preserve the beautiful natural environment around me.

I work as an Event Manager because I enjoy teamwork, getting my hands dirty, talking to people, problem solving and creating opportunities for fun! My role with Change Creators is to share these skills and passions to help others make positive changes to daily habits.

Lara Kerridge - Secretary/Treasurer

I’m a northern beaches local, a coffee lover and a conscientious environmentalist always trying to refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle waste.

I’ve always tried to encourage those around me to also be environmentally conscious which has resulted in some positive behaviour changes. Being involved in ChangeCreators means i can achieve the same thing but on a much larger scale, with the help of everyone together.

I bring to the table extensive business management skills and a real passion to create positive change regarding waste.

Elana Clark - Founding Member

I’m a professional Commercial Photographer and Graphic Designer and live in Sydney’s Northern Beaches with my husband, 2 sons and our gorgeous Red Kelpie. I’ve long been inspired by our President Claire Competiello’s passion for the environment and community education and now as a founding member of the Committee, I’m very much looking forward to having a key role in creating positive change in my local community. I’m excited to bring my digital media design and photography skills to the CC team
