Welcome Emily! Research and Engagement Specialist
August was a busy month where we welcomed not two, but three talented new staff members to our team! Emily joined us a couple of weeks after Gabby and Shannon but that has not slowed her down - she has hit the ground running working on helping to plan our Truth and Reconciliation Tour and supporting a number of other projects. Please join us in welcoming Emily to the Fed, and get to know her a little bit first by checking out her bio!
A little bit about Emily
I am incredibly excited to be joining the Fed as the Research and Engagement Specialist. After 6 years living and working in the Northwest Territories, I realized it was time to move back home to British Columbia. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Health Science, a Bachelor of Social Work and a Master’s in Public Health focusing in Indigenous Peoples' Health. My work experience has involved working with youth and young adults in a variety of settings including: providing health promotion in schools; designing program evaluation materials; employment counselling; job coaching; and providing 1 on 1 support to young adults with disabilities.
I love to read, try new workouts (currently loving Barre), spend time with friends and family, and create new recipes. On the weekends I can often be spotted in Vancouver trying out new coffee shops.
I am so grateful that the Fed has offered me an opportunity to use my passion for social justice, research, evaluation and most importantly, working with youth. I can’t wait to meet, and get to know, all of the current members, alumni and allies!
