Environmental Engineer at Thurber Engineering Ltd.
Originally from Chilliwack, B.C., I came to Edmonton in 2007 to attend the U of A. In 2011, I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Engineering. After graduating, I began working as an Environmental Engineer at Thurber Engineering in Edmonton. My role at Thurber took me to every corner of Northern Alberta to manage and execute environmental assessment and remediation projects. In 2017, Thurber sponsored me to return to U of A to complete my Master of Engineering Degree in Geoenvironmental Engineering and I finished the program in 2019. Today, I continue my role at Thurber Engineering as an Environmental Engineer where I manage environmental projects around Alberta. Outside of Thurber, I volunteer with various organizations including my role as the Chair of ENGGYAC, as the Secretary of the Geotechnical Society of Edmonton (GSE), and as a volunteer mentor for ENGG100 students at U of A. In my free (pre-COVID) time, I love to travel and explore new places (including over 15 countries in the past seven years). I’m also an avid scuba diver, golfer, snowboarder, and backcountry camper.
Q: If you could work from any location in the world, where would you set up your WFH space?
A: I would set myself up on a small island in Raja Ampat in Indonesia (some of the best scuba diving I’ve ever experienced), surround myself with high quality coffee and WIFI, and have days comprised of scuba diving in the mornings, napping in the afternoons, and working in the evenings to catch the mountain standard time office hours.
