I graduated from U of A with my Bachelor of Science in Forestry in 2009. I got my first opportunity with West Fraser in 2008 where I worked as a Forestry Summer Student in Williams Lake.
When I completed my degree in 2009 I started a term job in Operations and Silviculture working in Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. In 2010 and 2011, I worked in an Operations Term contract in Williams Lake where I got the opportunity to become a crew leader and worked on permit development in Likely, BC. I often worked in the Cariboo Chilcotin area on timber recce’s, layout, and firefighting.
Since then I have become a full-time Forestry Assistant at Fraser Lake Sawmill. I spend a lot of time in Burns Lake working on permit acquisitions. Some of the training courses I have had the opportunity to complete are: Riparian Classification, Timber/Log Quality, Fisheries Sensitive Watersheds, Cruising, Supervisory Skills, Harvesting, and Silviculture Surveying and Site Plan Data Collection."
