Giving back to the engineering and Edmonton community is one of the great joys of my career. As I step into the role of Senior Principal at AES, I am thrilled to join a team where I can continue building relationships with people within the engineering and construction industry while mentoring electrical designers who are advancing our profession.
Some of the best friendships I have developed, began through community and professional engagements. Every project brings its own challenges. For me, there is a unique bond that forms between people when they come together and work through a challenge. While this is true of all projects, the recent development of the Rogers Place Arena and Community Rink in Edmonton is a shining example of this. All forces came together on this fast-tracked project to make it happen. I am tremendously proud to have been a part of that.
As the world’s energy needs continue changing, one of the challenges that our profession and generation have before us is to design and implement recoverable sources of energy. As the President of the Alberta/Canada Fusion Technology Alliance, I work alongside a group of passionate colleagues who are advocating for fusion technology to achieve our energy requirements. This is one of the ways that I am working to prepare for a better tomorrow.
