Emily is a Climate Solutions Communications Specialist, developing and implementing communications strategies and messaging related to economic transitions away from fossil fuel economies.
Emily holds a B.S. in Society & Environment and a B.A. in English Literature from UC Berkeley, and a M.A. in Climate & Society from Columbia University's Climate School.
Before joining The Wilderness Society, Emily worked as a journalist and communications professional, telling stories on the intersection of climate science and society. She most recently worked as a climate communications graduate intern at the World Wildlife Fund, and wrote for Columbia University's GlacierHub, telling stories on how global communities are impacted by glacier retreat. Emily's concern for climate issues stems from growing up near public lands, including California's rural coast, and she hopes her work can connect small communities to a global conversation on climate change. She is currently based in Washington D.C., but she loves spending time back on the West Coast with her family and two dogs, Peter and Finnegan.
