Emily is an Energy Transition Communications Fellow, and is working on assisting the Energy Transition team at Climate Nexus.
Emily holds a BA in Environmental Anthropology and Literature from Bennington College, where she focused on the impact of resource extraction on low income communities. Prior to joining Climate Nexus, Emily wrote a journalistic thesis on the experiences of living in the fallout of mountaintop removal mining, using her own field work conducted in the coalfields of West Virginia. She also completed an internship with Cultural Survival, where she wrote articles for the organization's Quarterly magazine covering indigenous peoples' campaigns against pollution and environmental harm. She is particularly interested in stories of hope and agency as communities transition to clean energy and organize in the wake of disasters.
As a former Vermonter, Emily can be found scouring the New York City streets for real maple syrup, playing the fiddle, or "taking a hike" in Central Park.
