Nicole Goehring was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, representing the constituency of Edmonton-Castle Downs, on May 5, 2015.

She was appointed to the role of Government of Alberta’s Liaison to the Canadian Armed Forces shortly after being sworn in. In her role, Ms. Goehring is responsible for developing, supporting, promoting and sustaining government’s relationship with the Canadian Armed Forces. This led to Ms. Goehring’s appointment to the Edmonton Salutes Committee. This committee works collaboratively to support the military community in and around Edmonton.

Prior to serving with the Legislative Assembly, Ms. Goehring worked for close to a decade with Child and Family Services in various capacities, including as a caseworker, assessor and, most recently, as a court co-ordinator. Previous to this, she worked with Edmonton Integrated Services for seven years, six of which she spent in the role of group home supervisor.

From 1996-1997 Ms. Goehring worked as a peers educating peers coordinator for TERRA Association, a program she co-created and implemented in schools, hospitals and universities to provide community education in the area of teen pregnancy. From 1995-1996 she was a youth mediator with Community and Family Services. At that time she co-created and implemented a youth friendly mediation manual and program, and worked with Edmonton school counselors and Edmonton police officers to mediate youth related situations in schools and communities to avoid suspensions, expulsion and or criminal charges.

An active parent, she has managed sports teams, has worked on parent advisory committees and has acted as a parent liaison.[1]
