Since joining the H2OO team in 2019, Emily has supported hundreds of young leaders as they navigate their unique advocacy journeys and connect deeper with themselves, others, and our Blue Planet.
Emily has furthered H2OO’s mission by coordinating its global programs that allow youth advocates to reach their full potential. In 2020, she helped to develop and launch the U.S. Youth Advisory Council for the UN Ocean Decade and has coordinated several of H2OO’s global leadership summits. Emily additionally coordinates H2OO’s communications and mentors youth in best social media practices.
Prior to H2OO, Emily worked with the Nature Conservation Council of New South Wales, Australia, to stop degradation of Kosciusko National Park’s water resources, and thereafter she worked as a leader with AmeriCorps, Montana Conservation Corps, and the U.S. Forest Service conserving Custer Gallatin National Forest bordering Yellowstone National Park.
Emily graduated from UCSB majoring in economics and environmental science.
