As Publications Officer, Emma works closely with the Communications and Learning and Partnership Development Teams to raise awareness of child marriage around the world. She helps to ensure that Girls Not Brides resources are available and useful to diverse audiences, promoting open discussion and learning between organisations. She coordinates the translation of resources between English, French and Spanish and is responsible for brand guardianship.
Prior to joining Girls Not Brides, Emma worked on development and prevention of recruitment/exploitation programmes in Colombia and Somalia. In her research, communications and evaluation roles, she learned the value of two-way communication between community and inter/national actors, and promoted learning and responsiveness to local contexts. In working with communities affected by violent conflict, Emma also became passionate about human and Indigenous rights, and the ability of girls and women to fulfil their potential alongside boys and men.
Emma has an MA in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and a BA in Geography. She speaks English, French and Spanish.
