    Groundwater Supply & Protection Specialist, and Senior Hydrogeologist

    • I love being in-the-know of upcoming technologies. For example, enhanced genetic technology can help us to better determine what pathogens are in our drinking water. We can then help water suppliers make informed decisions.
    • Volunteering with the Okanagan Water Stewardship Council, BC Groundwater Association, BC Water and Waste Association, and working with a wide range of clients allows me to be part of the positive change to water related regulations happening around me.
