Marie-Édith has a CEGEP degree in environmental and wildlife management and is enrolled in her third year of a bachelor’s in environmental studies at the Université de Sherbrooke. Passionate and curious about any issue related to society and the environment, she has taken part in a host of meaningful projects and jobs, wearing the hat of conservation technician, naturalist, municipal officer and researcher. Her professional experiences have helped her understand the many facets of environmental issues and be able to work these into her dealings with various stakeholders.
Her involvement also reflects her desire to be part of systemic change and environmental education. In particular, she coordinated the Cégep de Sainte-Foy environmental committee, garnering her an eco-citizenship scholarship in 2016 from the Cégep de Sainte-Foy foundation. She is also a founding member of the organization Éco-motion as an active project manager and helps communities adapt and build resilience in light of climate change.
Marie-Édith joins the ENvironnement JEUnesse team for her third internship, as a program support officer.
