Emily joined TEA in April 2010. She brings experience in non-profit organizations and a background in Urban Planning, communications and environmental education to her work at TEA.
Emily has worked and volunteered in non-profits for over a decade: most recently she was the Executive Director for RiverSides, since 2007, a local NGO focusing on urban water issues, especially rainwater harvesting. She's also spent time in Australia, volunteering and working on green building and intentional communities with an eco-city project in Adelaide.
Emily loves the city and is passionate about urban ecology: engaging people in the interaction between natural and urban systems and feeling connected to the environment in the city. She is currently a volunteer with Lost Rivers, researching and creating walking tours exploring the history and impact of current and past waterways in Toronto.
