What does a typical (work) day look like for you?

There’s no such thing as a typical work day; that’s the best part about my job.

What are your favorite projects and why?

  • Woodfibre LNG in Squamish, BC – For a client who trusted us to deliver their application for an Environmental Assessment Certificate (and continues to trust me to be part of their team), the fabulous Hemmera team that I got to work with (and share take-out dinner with), and all the challenges that go along with the environmental assessment for a major project.
  • Wahleach Hydro Project in Hope, BC – For the opportunity to work with like-minded consulting firms and lead a dedicated team of environmental professionals.
  • Box Canyon Hydro Project in Gibsons, BC – For the opportunity to be involved in a Project from the Development Plan through commissioning.  
  • Project Reviews on Behalf of FLNRO, the EAO, and BC Hydro – For the trust that those groups place in my ability to provide them with the information they need to make the right decisions.

Why Hemmera?

Because the only constraints are your dedication and imagination. It’s a company that trusts its employees to take projects and run with them.
