I was inspired to join a team of dedicated and passionate people centering Indigenous-led conservation in the organization’s work towards achieving ambitious climate goals.


Emilie began working with Nature United in 2024 as the Natural Climate Solutions Program Specialist. In this role, Emilie supports the Natural Climate Solutions team with management of priority program initiatives and cross-functional collaboration. 

Before joining Nature United, Emilie led the team delivering Evergreen’s Housing Supply Challenge Support Program, which included managing capacity-building, skill-building and advisory services offerings for applicants to the various rounds of CMHC’s Housing Supply Challenge. She has worked with various non-profits co-developing and implementing experiential and land-based education programs with Indigenous youth and communities. Emilie has a Bachelor of Arts in International Development and Indigenous Studies from McGill University. 

When not at work, Emilie can usually be found running, biking or skiing on local trails with her two dogs.
