Kerra Chomlak

Executive Director

Kerra has over 25 years of experience working on sustainability and climate issues in Alberta from various perspectives. Formerly the Manager of Environment at the City of Leduc, Kerra focused on municipal environmental issues including regional climate resilience projects and creating the city’s first adaptation and mitigation plans.
