What does a typical work day look like for you?

A typical work day may include internal staff meetings, client meetings, writing proposals, project management activities, writing reports, setting up and managing programs, and mentoring staff and career development activities.

What is your favorite project and why is it your favourite?

One of my favorite clients is a downstream oil and gas client. We do a lot of Phase I/II/IIIs for them at their gas station/bulk fuel sites. We get a variety of experience and we have a great working relationship with the client.

Why Hemmera?

I started my career at a small consulting company who were bought by a large consulting company. I really missed the small company feel and have found that again at Hemmera. At Hemmera, there is great structure and mentorship, and everyone is really approachable and helpful. Hemmera has a great team of people and atmosphere and we all really enjoy working together.

The social events are always memorable at Hemmera! No one in particular stands out over another, but we always have a great time, whether it be family BBQs, Calgary Stampede events, after-work bowling, fundraisers or holiday parties.
