Strategic Advisors & Core Partners

Matt Williamson
Matt is a conservation scientist interested in understanding how the interactions between people, their environment, and the institutions that govern them inspire (or inhibit) conservation action and how that impacts their effectiveness. He's working with the Rockies program to build social capital for wildlife conservation across the western US, Canada, and northern Mexico.

Emily Jochem
Emily Jochem joined the WCS Rockies team in 2021 as an intern to support the working lands initiative. In this role she is exploring innovative approaches and tools to support wildlife conservation on working lands. Emily has a background in ecological restoration, environmental education, and wildlife field research. She is interested in using interdisciplinary approaches to identify conservation methods that conserve and restore wildlife populations, while also preserving the cultural and economic values of diverse communities. Emily is currently pursuing a M.S. in Environmental Studies and a Natural Resources Conflict Resolution Certificate from the University of Montana. She has a B.A. in Biology from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR.

Christopher J. Carter, AICP
Christopher grew up in the Rockies in Siksikaitsitapi (Blackfoot Confederacy) Traditional Territory in Montana. He is a professional urban & regional planner, holding an M.Sc. in urban and community planning from the University of British Columbia with a specialty in regional resilience planning, natural resource governance, science communication, and spatial analytics. With a decade of mentorship in Indigenous community planning from Greenland to Central Asia, he advises WCS Rockies in the creation of strong plans in step with Tribal Nations, compelling visual communications, and modeling complex systems. Working closely with regional agencies, Amskapi Piikani (Blackfeet Nation) leadership, researchers, and local families since 2016, he is engaged in biocultural initiatives including the bison restoration, conservation area planning, systems planning, community economic development, and creating metrics of well-being across the Nation's five watersheds. As a lifelong resident of the Northern Rockies, he is honored to support Indigenous and locally-led stewardship in his home region.
