Profile Introduction and Analysis
Practice stories (or practitioner profiles as we call them here) are useful learning tools. They open a window into lived experience, illustrating challenge and opportunity, as well as wisdom gained from this experience. The profiles collected here contain useful first-hand knowledge of the intersection of pest management and community engagement in both personal and professional experience. While practitioners reveal diverse objectives, they share a common desire to bring people together, across their differences, for mutually beneficial and acceptable outcomes. The result is a collection that shows how the interaction between ideas, experience and reflection can sustain an individual in their work with community, over time.
