I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY to be nominated for
councillor, as ASET has played a key role in my career. I grew
up on a farm north of Lloydminster, Alberta where I started
my career in the construction industry before heading off
to Lethbridge College to graduate with a diploma in Civil
Engineering Technology. Upon graduation, I relocated to
Edmonton in 2007 to work for WSP|OPUS (formerly OPUS
Stewart Weir) and continue to work today as a project
manager. I received a Bachelor's Degree with honours in
Technology Management from NAIT in 2012.

ASET needs to continue to be innovative to support our
members during these challenging times. I would like to focus
on enhancing the services that ASET provides its members,
such as;
*
*
*
*

Recognition of the P.Tech.(Eng.) designation,
Revisit the Career Centre business model to promote
more job opportunities,
Collaborate with neighboring provincial Associations, and
Increase our online presence.

If nominated, I would be eager to work on challenging
projects for our members whether this be on the current
APEGA/ASET legislative dispute, industry awareness, or other
challenging tasks.

I AM HONORED to be nominated to run for ASET Council. I

will proudly represent fellow technologists and technicians and
will strive to bring fresh new perspectives to council from my
experience in the fields of Engineering, Information Systems,
and Information Technology.
My career in Information Technology has expanded greatly
since I entered the field in 2007, from beginning as a co-op
student, advancing to the role of Network Administrator, to my
current position as a Systems Integration Analyst. My current
role focuses primarily on project management, improving
organizational processes, automation, and a combination of onpremises and cloud computing services. My future career goals
include integrating my current knowledge and experience base
with business operations and management.
I am currently completing my Master of Science in Information
Systems and hold a Bachelor of Science in Computing and
Information Systems (2014) from Athabasca University, and a
diploma in Computer Engineering Technology (2007) from SAIT.
My involvement with ASET began as a C.E.T. in 2012 and I have
volunteered with ASET in the following capacities:
*
*
*
*

Board of Examiners 2014-current
Mentoring others in career planning 2015-current
Review and testing of Professional Practice Exams in
related disciplines
Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)
program 2016-current

The ASET volunteer position I have been perhaps the most
passionate about has been in my role of working alongside
fellow members to initiate province-wide certification
requirements for IT professionals. In December 2017, I
was honored to be selected as a recipient of the Graduate
Citizenship Award based primarily upon my extensive volunteer
work with ASET and my role here in spearheading disciplinespecific certification for IT professionals. I look forward to
continuing to bring this level of dedication and passion in my
service as a Councillor with ASET.
