Emma is a strategic leader with expertise in sustainability communications. Early in her career, she became acquainted with Alberta’s energy history and the complexities shaping today’s global energy transition.


Fascinated by the ways in which ecological, social and economic systems interconnect, her interest in energy quickly evolved into a deeper passion for unearthing stories and communicating about sustainability practices. From corporate communications and business storytelling to community engagement and creative writing, Emma is committed to advancing the transition to a more sustainable future.


She leverages the power of communications to constructively explore complex issues and uses storytelling as a tool to discuss divergent perspectives. She is relentlessly curious and open-minded.


Emma holds a Bachelor of Arts in History and Creative Writing from the University of Calgary, but considers herself a lifelong learner as she continues to explore new topics and perspectives. 


When she’s not working, Emma can be found bouldering, weight lifting or adventuring with her husband and their dog, Georgia.​
