Charla provides enthusiastic yet pragmatic guidance to organizations that want to deepen their social and environmental impact and make meaningful contributions to sustainability.
Over the course of her career, she has helped numerous organizations and cross-sectoral initiatives develop strategic plans, influence policies and practices, evaluate their progress, and scale.
More recently, Charla founded a consultancy that helps non-profits and businesses develop bold, purpose-led strategies that create long-term impact. She is thrilled to expand her reach and influence by teaming up with Junxion as an Affiliate Senior Consultant on a project-by-project basis.
Outside of challenging the status quo, Charla enjoys spending time with her partner and two small humans in their garden in Calgary, AB.
