University of Alberta
Science – Ecology
I have reshaped my life, personally and professionally. I draw on a multitude of experiences as I near the completion of my Master of Science degree and become a practicing Biologist. It is a career that I am immensely proud of and I truly feel I am contributing towards the betterment of our communities. I have a beautiful family which includes Cedar, our newborn daughter and Angela, my eldest daughter. We camp, hike, climb and fish. By marrying up my passion for the outdoors with an education that allows me to study nature, I have found great happiness.
“For those that read this, thank you – for your part in this process. As a student going to school with a family, the funds I receive from NRTF significantly help me balance household expenses. It helps relieve some of the financial pressures associated with having little income and allows me to more clearly focus on achieving my educational goals, of obtaining my Masters so I can become a practicing biologist. So again, thank you for your help. I am grateful to be given this honour and award!”
