Shawn Boven, AScT
I was originally recruited out of college to work for the Ministry of Transportation out of Terrace. But within six months of relocating, found myself working for the City of Terrace in the Engineering & Public Works Department, where I discovered my passion. For the past 23 years I have been providing public utility services in various communities including, Terrace, Castlegar, Penticton, and now Merritt. I love the blend between engineering and operational activities.
Why I Became A Technology Professional
- As a child I was curious as to how things worked. New toys were quickly dismantled and often reassembled with some kind of modification to make them “better”. This carried on to a love of science so a career in technology was a natural choice.
