Candidate's Statement

Thank you for considering me for the Director at large role with the PEGNL Board of Directors.  I have been a member of PEGNL since 2005, and have been a practicing electrical engineer since that time. During this time I’ve held a variety of technical and management roles, which I believe my engineering education has helped prepare me for. My recent senior management roles within my organization have help me expand my view of the problems we face in organizations, look at the larger vision, and build strategic plans to solve them. In addition, I believe our actions and behaviors must reflect the ethics and morals that society expects from those practicing our profession.  

My experience has mainly been within the maintenance field of an electric utility. This has been a very rewarding field of practice for me, and a field suited to those within our membership. I believe as a profession we have a great deal to offer employers and our province as they face many financial and technical issues in the near future. I believe my experience will help me contribute to PEGNL in this capacity and help advance our profession within the province.

I appreciate your consideration of my nomination for this role.  Many thanks.
