Senior Policy and Outreach Manager
Emily brings more than 20 years of nonprofit experience — organizing, advocacy, outreach, fundraising and more — to her role with SELC, including work with The Public Interest Network, Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and Virginia League of Conservation Voters. She monitors Virginia state government in Richmond and works with SELC’s Virginia attorneys, elected officials, nonprofit partners and community leaders to advance solutions to our environmental problems.
Her current focus is on protecting rivers and drinking water from threats from industrial gold mining, opposing unnecessary gas infrastructure that will lock in climate emissions and protecting Virginians from industrial toxins.
One of her favorite places is the James River Park System — which is in walking distance of her home. She can watch the sun rise from the shores of Texas Beach with nothing but the sounds of nature.
