Celine Truong | Coordinator, Communications
Celine is a social researcher in the not-for-profit sector. She completed a BSc in Environmental Science and a BA in Global Development at the University of Calgary where she became passionate about the interface between human land use, public policy, and ecological integrity. Her undergraduate research focused on food security, where she developed her interests in place-making and balancing people-centered urban planning to foster sustainable community development.
Her work in the settlement and integration sector has a vital proponent in knowledge mobilization, ensuring that best practices designed and created by professionals are accessible to the public. Creating spaces to learn from one another, finding ways to mobilize unique strengths and leverage adapting practices is vital to Celine's work, which she hopes to carry into her role as communications coordinator at CEP.
In her spare time, she loves film photography, hiking, and exploring Calgary's urban bike paths.
