Career Experience

I worked in the construction industry as a floor covering installer for about fifteen years and completed an apprenticeship in that trade. After developing knee trouble I retrained as a water/wastewater treatment plant operation and graduated from the Malaspina College program in that profession. I have always thrived on professional development and continued to upgrade my professional qualifications as well as assuming increased responsibility in increasingly challenging positions. After moving into management positions in local government public works I continued to improve my knowledge base and am now employed as a Chief Administrative Officer in local government. This position is responsible for advising on policy and policy implementation and the day to day operation of a municipality. Intermingled in my career is 26 years of service in the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve (Infantry and Armour).

Why I Became A Technology Professional

  • I became a technology professional because it provided me with the knowledge and systems to critically view the short and long term accomplishments that my team and I worked to complete. I am able to apply the technical expertise that I had gained through continuing professional development with practical experience to successfully complete a wide variety of tasks.
