Our Team


Senior Manager, Administration and Human Resources - Christie Schulze has a passion for the environment which began at an early age; she often arrived home late because she had been collecting garbage while walking home. She feels lucky to have found an organization to make use of her talents for numbers and administration.  When she isn’t at work she may be found at a local yarn store or at home with her spinning wheel and a freshly washed fleece.

Communications & Community Engagement Specialist - Lex van der Raadt formed an interest in the environment from growing up on stories of adventure and exploration. His voracious appetite for knowledge led to degrees in archaeology and English, and a thirst for sharing with others all he has learned. In his spare time, Lex enjoys culinary experimentation, creative writing, and designing games.

Green Hub Team Member - Jen Freudenthaler is a native Calgarian who is passionate about community and the environment. After many years of volunteering, Jen became involved with the Clean Air Champions and Waste Wise Outreach Programs; has led education workshops; and is a graduate of the Master Composter Course. Currently Jennifer helps out in the EcoStore and various projects.

Program Staff

Coordinator, Environment and Climate Literacy - Community, Youth, and Children - Raine Sillito spent her youth exploring nature and growing food with her family in rural Alberta. A permaculture course inspired her to work with children and explore her passion for education, sustainable living and creating space for social innovation. When she's not studying for her graduate degree in Integral Learning, she enjoys reading, painting, and developing theatre projects.

Educator, Environment and Climate Literacy - Children and Youth - Nancy Selin is a nurse with a great passion for teaching and learning. She has great memories of camping as a child and now as a mother of 3, she does the same with her family most weekends in the summer. A good camping weekend also includes an easy read and some bird watching. Her desire to learn more about how to care for our planet grew when she volunteered with her son's class on a field trip to the Material Recovery Facility. Together with her family, Nancy is learning how best we can care for the world in which we live and play.
