Background and expertise

Previously, Emilene was photographic coordinator at National Geographic magazine in Washington, DC, a reporter at High Country News in Colorado, and a freelance reporter covering environmental and community stories in the West. Her graduate thesis was a collaborative project with wildlife photographer (and ENR graduate) Joe Riis to document--through photography and storytelling--the migration of a herd of pronghorn antelope from its summer range in Grand Teton National Park to winter range in the Green River Basin and back. She has lived abroad in Guatemala and Mexico.

As editor at the Haub School, Emilene writes, edits, produces, and manages Confluence magazine, a new biannual publication from the Ruckelshaus Institute covering collaborative approaches to natural resource problem solving in the west. She also oversees web and print materials for the Haub School including newsletters, reports, press releases, social media, and web content.
