What brought our newest team members to the Chamber?


Emily Bednarz

Emily Bednarz, Communications Coordinator

"I came to the Chamber for my love of publishing magazines — like the one you’re reading right now! My first job in publishing had me covering businesses, organizations, and events in small town Ontario. I was Managing Editor for a non-profit literary magazine before coming to the Chamber. As Communications Coordinator, I’m able to combine my two loves: working in not-for-profit and writing stories about our business community. I can’t wait to learn more about Halifax, my new home!"


NEHA BHOJWANI

Neha Bhojwani, Event Coordinator

"I graduated from the Mount in May 2021 with a degree in Marketing and continued my university job in the banking industry. However, I knew my passion lay in planning and events. They say the opportunity will present itself to you when it’s your time. That, plus the power of LinkedIn is how I ended up at the Chamber doing exactly what I am passionate about. I am excited to grow and learn at the Chamber and see a completely different perspective of the Halifax business community."


JOSH CREIGHTON

Josh Creighton, Community Engagement Specialist

"My commitment to social justice and my passion for entrepreneurship brought me to the Chamber! I am a lifelong resident of the North End of Halifax. Growing up in a community where residents have been historically overlooked and displaced has embedded my strong passion for social justice and community development. In my work with The Halifax Chamber of Commerce, I am able to align my work with my personal beliefs and values."


JULIA LEVERNOIS

Julia Levernois, Member Services Specialist

"I was seeking growth, opportunity, and a switch in my career. I love business, engaging and learning from others. After learning more about the Chamber, I realized they were the right fit for me and chased after what I truly wanted. Here I am, loving work, the people I work with and always learning from business owners in every facet of life. There’s always an opportunity to learn if you open your heart and mind to those around you."
