As a youth at 4-H summer camp, Jayme’s world opened up to environment, sustainability and community issues. She learned the importance of education and shared perspectives. Jayme loves watching people’s faces light up when they make important connections, and see the world in a new way. It starts with the opportunity to explore and discover. That’s the promise behind every sunrise, and the reason Jayme wakes up every morning

Kate is the Energy and Climate Educator at Inside Education. Before joining the Inside Education team, Kate worked as a wildlife biologist in Alberta tracking changes in wildlife and their habitats. Getting to spend so much time in Alberta’s natural regions, Kate developed a deep passion for wildlife and environmental stewardship, and she wanted the opportunity to teach others about these topics. 
In 2015 she retired her chest-waders and headed back to school where she completed an After-Degree in Elementary Education and a Certificate in Sustainability. Kate is passionate about encouraging students to become dedicated stewards of the natural resources and landscapes in Alberta. At Inside Education, she gets to do this all the time!

Julie was born and raised in the city, with no connection to farming whatsoever, but became increasingly interested in food and how it’s produced.  My travels to Ethiopia, Estonia and Japan introduced me to different foods and different agricultural practices, which got me thinking about food production on a global scale.  I chose to study agriculture and graduated with a B Sc. in Sustainable Agricultural Systems and spent a summer/fall working on a small vegetable farm – I loved it. My work experiences as a crop research assistant and Food Safety Intern have given me insights into various aspects of food production and challenges food producers face.
