She has an academic background in environmental geography and sustainable community development, with an emphasis on carbon emission abatement policies and active transportation. She is currently enrolled in the Master’s of Urban Studies program at SFU. Before her return to school, Amelia spent 5 years as a part of a family owned and operated restaurant business.
