ForestEthics, ForestEthics Advocacy, and ForestEthics Solutions operate as a highly effective international coalition of independent organizations. While we are separate entities we coordinate closely–working together to achieve specific shared goals and objectives in the US and Canada.
Nikki joined ForestEthics in 2009, the sole employee in our Smithers, BC, office. Her current focus is in stopping the Enbridge tar sands pipelines and promoting green energy solutions provincially. For several years Nikki worked with One Sky on policy and practical programs in Canada, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Peru. She began to focus on energy issues after coordinating Canadian NGOs around the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. Nikki has advocated for renewable solutions at the United Nations, Canadian, provincial and local levels, and has practical experience installing solar panels. Nikki sits on several Boards including the Canadian Renewable Energy Alliance, the Wetzinkwa Community Forest and the Smithers Sustainable Advisory Committee. She holds a degree in Canadian Studies and International Relations from University of British Columbia.
Nikki’s passion is creating social and environmental change at multiple levels. She lives with her Argentine partner and daughter Lucia.
