Personal Statement

My broad knowledge and experience (raised farming, class 1 and pilot license, first-year apprentice machining, field engineer), business and international exposure have made me a very effective engineer and leader, and I am now in a position where I can meaningfully contribute to my profession through APEGA Council.

I have worked in highly technical and leadership roles as an inventor, a director, and a business owner. Running my own engineering firm, along with obtaining an MBA, has given me the business and financial knowledge to provide insight for Council on the business need. Through my leadership experience and due diligence reporting, I have ensured accountability and transparency for spend.

An effective councillor must effectively voice the concerns of the members at large, who:

  • are extremely proud of their work and want the public to value the responsibility they bear;
  • want to comply with the Act but are generally unsure what is required;
  • value transparency and how membership fees are used.

I understand the difficulty and cost associated for ensuring compliance to the Act and have a practical perspective to bring to Council. I have worked with many different professionals internationally, from many backgrounds and highly value a diverse perspective.
