Elizabeth Jack

Born and raised in Calgary, Elizabeth is a life-long learner whose studies in Philosophy took her to ponder life’s big questions in faraway places like Ireland, Belgium and Germany. She returned to Calgary in 2009, where it has been a privilege to participate in the discourse of a city exploring its identity and what it wants to be. She works in the fields of continuous improvement and organizational effectiveness. She is currently in a professional role with an energy company that combines her philosophical interests in learning and problem solving processes, experiential education and employee engagement.  

You can usually find Elizabeth on some sort of outdoor adventure – hiking, climbing, camping, cycling, x-country skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing are all treasured ways to spend her time. She also volunteers as a Ranger leader with Girl Guides of Canada, mentoring brilliant young women in outdoor pursuits and responsible citizenship. She is thrilled to be part of Next Up’s Climate Leadership Program, and looks forward to the challenge and community involved.
