Candidate's Statement

I am grateful to be nominated for a second year in a row to serve as part of the Board of Directors for PEGNL. Since running in 2018 I have become actively involved in PEGNL’s guidelines committee and have continued my role as executive committee member of Connections East. I have been a member of PEGNL since 2009 and if elected I will use my passion for our profession and skills I have learned along the way, in helping shape our policies to better serve our members and public interest. I believe that as Engineers and Geoscientists we have a leading role in planning, designing, building, and providing a safe and sustainable future. For these reasons I would kindly request your support for my candidacy as Director.

For the past 11 years I have been involved in the Civil and Structural engineering industry providing consulting services to clients from British Columbia to Newfoundland and Labrador.  During this time, I have had the privilege of working on several challenging yet rewarding projects which, in-turn has broadened my outlook on our profession and allowed me to gain invaluable experience.  I am particularly interested in continuing education and the importance of keeping aware of the latest technologies and innovative solutions. I believe that we need to learn from our failures and success as professionals and embrace change to ensure an environmentally sustainable, safe, while lucrative future. I strive to implement these principles in my daily practice and will help be an advocate for such with PEGNL.

I am optimistic of the future of engineering and geoscience in our province and I hope to continue to be part of its development in the coming years. I look forward to being a voice for our community and I will do my best to support the interest of our members and the public, as a member of the Board of Directors. Thank you.
