Before joining The B Team in March 2017, Emily spent three years working at Climate Action Network (CAN), a network of over 1,000 NGOs working on climate change. During her time there she coordinated campaigning to influence country targets ahead of the Paris Agreement. Latterly, she worked at both regional and international level with civil society, city networks, business networks and faith groups to campaign on 100% Renewable Energy.

Before joining the climate movement, Emily worked for Crisis Action, an organisation campaigning to protect civilians from armed conflict, where she worked on an emergency response campaign on the escalating conflict in the Central African Republic. Previous to this Emily worked at the European Commission in a communications role, promoting foreign language education across Europe and in particular in the UK.

Emily holds a BA in International Relations from Durham University, UK and a MSc in Violence, Conflict and Development from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). Emily currently works out of London.
