Councillor Natalie Joly
Natalie Joly was raised in St. Albert, then lived in both Edmonton and New Zealand before returning home to St. Albert. She now lives with her family in Akinsdale.
Through a commitment to social, environmental, and economic sustainability, Natalie's actions on Council have included strengthening supports for vulnerable persons within St. Albert and supporting sustainable development. She also holds the unique honour of championing the first motion within an Alberta municipality to ban the practice of "conversion therapy".
In addition to her role on Council, she is an MBA candidate at Athabasca University, and volunteers as an Affiliate Photographer with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, an organization that provides bereavement portraiture to families experiencing the loss of an infant.
With 20 years of involvement with the local whitewater kayaking community, Natalie is also an avid kayaker and outdoor enthusiast. More recently, she has become a member of the Alberta Mycological Association, where she is learning the joys of mushroom identification and foraging.
