Energy Sector Expert
From my experience working with Marcie, the most impressive for me has been seeing her connect and encourage both people and ideas in every field she has worked in, whether it’s energy, international relations, or gender issues. I’ve had so much fun working with her that we’ve become friends outside of work – and I think that speaks mountains for her as a person.
Singapore Economic Development Office
Marcie’s professionalism, expertise on gender issues and ability to problem-solve stood out to me. We worked to highlight challenges that female entrepreneurs and women in business experience to international institutions including the World Bank and the United Nations during our time together. Marcie was always willing to take on new challenges and support us in any way that we needed
University of Alberta
Marcie was among the most respected colleagues… She has a unique ability to build rapport with senior leadership and peers alike, excelling in both small rooms and big rooms across government. In particular, her political acumen was a real asset to our department, as was her ability to build collaborative space for creative solutions to tricky internal and external challenges. She spearheaded our mentorship program and Women in Leadership committee, sparking innovations that soon spread throughout the Alberta Public Service. She makes every team better.
Intergovernmental Relations, Government of Alberta
Marcie has a strong understanding of the energy sector in Alberta and was able to advise senior leadership and political forces of U.S. political and trade positions influencing Alberta. I had the pleasure of working directly with Marcie in a role where she coordinated international energy and environmental advocacy, education and outreach activities focused on the U.S. political and trade markets. Marcie was responsible for managing growing international U.S. interest in Alberta’s energy resources and environmental management practices. She was able to foster and maintain relationships with external stakeholders, such as U.S. Government representatives, industry and associations to advance the interests of Alberta within in the U.S. She also worked on strategic cross-departmental initiatives, such as the advocacy efforts towards Keystone XL. Working directly with the Alberta Washington Office, she was able to increase investment attraction, trade promotion and Government relations within the U.S.
Legal Adviser, United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights
I had the opportunity to work with Marcie during my tenure as Legal Counsel at the Canadian Human Rights Commission. In this context, I got to know Marcie as a knowledgeable professional on the National and international human rights governance structures, including the role and functioning of national human rights institutions and of the UN human rights machinery such as the Human Rights Council and it’s Universal Periodic Review process. Marcie is a dynamic, energetic and well-informed professional. I appreciated working alongside her for the collegiality, warmth and calm demeanour she brought to our team.”
