Luisa brings over 20 years of diverse experience in the energy, mining, education, and not-for-profit sectors.  She began her career in the fossil fuel industry of northern Alberta, and has been influenced by her mining experiences in Canada and abroad.   After a successful career as a professional geoscientist, Luisa moved to the United Kingdom to pursue an Executive Master’s of Business Administration. While in the UK, Luisa managed digital transformations at a leading private school.  After her return to her hometown in Ontario, she worked in the not-for-profit sector with one of Canada’s top environmental charities.

In her spare time, Luisa is an outdoor enthusiast and spends as much time in nature as possible; transitioning to green solutions has been a life journey. Along the way, Luisa has learned that she is enthusiastic about educating others and enabling them to transition to fulfilling careers. She is thrilled to be part of Iron + Earth so that she can leverage all of her different passions, empower the workforce, and balance the needs of all stakeholders.
