How would you describe your experience to date at Allnorth?
During my time at Allnorth I have had the privilege of managing numerous high-profile and high-value projects in the natural resource sectors. Allnorth has also provided the opportunity for me to help grow both our Construction Services and Project Management Groups in Prince George. It is exciting to be able to work with our team members and provide them opportunities to learn, grow and develop their project management and leadership skillsets. I enjoy working with our clients to find the most productive and economical ways to address their project problems.
What did you learn at SA Energy Group?
I had the privilege of working with SA Energy on the Coastal GasLink project in 2020 as an Erosion and Sediment Control Lead. SA Energy is a world class organization and their commitment to their people, their product and their use of innovative technologies was amazing to be a part of. Working as part of their team afforded me the ability to hone my project interface skills and better understand the challenges pipeline construction contractors and the pipeline industry face and overcome on a daily basis.
