Professional engineers and geoscientists have played a powerful role in my life. My early participation in science fairs and robotics teams influenced my decision to pursue my engineering degrees and a career in the geosciences. This has fueled my passion for public and industry education in STEM topics. Today I am an active volunteer with geoscience and energy societies, organizing and facilitating events that promote knowledge-sharing and bringing people together – values I will bring to Council.
In addition to education, I am passionate about promoting the advancement and retention of women in STEM, supporting a changing professional workforce, and communication – keeping members informed on important developments and initiatives within APEGA as well as key council decisions.
In my everyday work, I have a propensity to see what needs to get done, ask key questions, and then find ways to address existing and foreseeable issues. I strongly believe in multi-disciplinary approaches to complex problems, a key trait that has propelled me through my career.
As a Councillor, I will strive to be an active participant by raising important issues, considering the viewpoints of my fellow Council members. I will make thoughtful decisions while weighing the impact of my decisions on APEGA members.
