IT IS AN HONOR to be nominated to run for Second
Vice-President. Over the past year I have had the privilege
of serving on ASET council and chair of the Governance
Committee. In these volunteer positions, I have had many
opportunities to learn and grow in my personal life and career.

In addition to serving with ASET, I have been volunteering
my time with Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC). As a
member of the Governance and Audit Council, I help in the
creation and implementation of a second level review. The
processes used to qualify for accreditation and verify that
standards are followed.
In my career, I work for MPE Engineering as the Laboratory
Manager. There, I oversee the material testing program which
include coordinating testing services; training, managing
and supervising material testing staff; ensuring that testing
is done in conformance to applicable specifications; and
arranging for lab certification.
In my spare time I volunteer as an assistant Scout leader.
In this role I plan events and assist with formal ceremonies.
Watching the kids develop their skills and talents is a
rewarding experience.
With your support, I would be honoured to have the
opportunity to serve as Second Vice-President.

I AM A NATIVE ALBERTAN and have spent much of my
career living and working around many parts of Western
Canada and the Arctic. I have been extremely fortunate to
have seen so much of our country, including some of the
more isolated locations in Western Canada and the Canadian
Arctic. I have been an ASET member since 1986 and a Certified
Engineering Technologist (C.E.T.) since 1992. I graduated from
the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton,
Alberta as a Building Construction Engineering Technologist.
While the program was focused on residential and commercial
construction, I took what I learned and used it on my industrial,
oil and gas, and mechanical construction projects.

My career has been a wild ride over time with the various
economic ups and downs which led me into a variety of
industries that I never expected to see. But the positions I
performed - and the people I was privileged to work with and
learn from - continued adding to my engineering technology
knowledge and experience. Each challenge we experience
is definitely another opportunity to grow and learn what we
can use for the benefit of others. Sharing that knowledge and
experience helps everyone. Those challenges and solutions can
lead to fun times and good stories to share with others.
I began volunteering with ASET when I was approved to join the
Board of Examiners. Working on the Board of Examiners was a
very fulfilling role as we helped engineering technologists and
technicians to achieve their official certifications. Our Board of
Examiners shared a lot of fun and laughter too.
I was elected to the ASET Council two years ago. While serving
on Council and Council's committees, I learned how our
organization operates as a provincial regulatory body for the
benefit of our ASET members and the public. I was able to see
how the past ASET and APEGA Legislative Review attempt
would have provided clearer information for the public and
our professions to regulate professional responsibilities and
obligations in Alberta. I want to be able to continue the work
on Council promoting the Scope of Practice for our technology
professionals. There are exciting times ahead as we continue
the work to improve our particular professional engineering
and geoscience technology scope of practice as responsible
technology professionals.
