Roberta acquired a love for nature from growing up on a farm in southern Alberta and spending time outdoors. After gaining an environmental studies and human geography degree from the University of Victoria, she travelled through Europe and worked on permaculture farms in France. She believes that caring for the environment is essential for our health and happiness, and is an important step in solving many of the social, health and well-being problems of our day. She enjoys her role as a client relation’s facilitator for Assembly Co-working space in Calgary and looks forward to a future career in environmental education.
