My job allows me to work outside and interact with many people on a regular basis. It is a challenging job, but it is fun and rewarding
I’ve been in the forestry industry for the past 32 years, starting in land management and transitioning into timber procurement. I graduated from North Carolina State University and I am a North Carolina Registered Forester. At West Fraser, I like having the responsibility and the flexibility to get the job done. We have a good group of people that work well together.
There are many different options within the forestry community for careers. Timber is a sustainable resource, and if we take care of our resources, it will be sustainable for many generations.
In my free time, I enjoy coaching ball teams. You can usually find me on a baseball field or a basketball gym almost every evening. I grew up playing sports, so naturally, all 3 of my kids participate in sports. I’m a big believer that sports teach kids about teamwork. West Fraser has been a good sponsor for many of the sports programs in our community.
