Speaker Bio
Kylie Adams brings a diverse range of experience and insight to her role as Manager of Communications & Education at the Edmonton Humane Society (EHS). Having joined EHS nearly seven years ago, her background in communications combined with an education in animal welfare gives Kylie a unique perspective to identify potential issues while effectively delivering messages to both internal and external audiences that align with the shelter’s mission to enrich the lives of people and animals.

Like many young animal lovers, Kylie dreamt of being a veterinarian. Through pursuing her BSc in Animal Health from the University of Alberta, she was exposed to the fields of animal behaviour and welfare and decided to switch paths, recognizing the significant need for science-based public education in these areas. She then went on to do an MSc in International Animal Welfare, Ethics & Law with the University of Edinburgh, and a Diploma in Public Relations with the University of Victoria.

Prior to working in animal welfare, Kylie gained experience in project management, sales, employee training, and business management. She loves coming up with new ideas and loves bringing them to a reality, as well as sharing knowledge with others. Kylie also has four pets - including a 3-legged rabbit - all adopted from the Humane Society.
