Grad Class of 1998

The Natural Resource Science Degree Program and the Co-op Work Terms have given me great experience in multiple areas of managing natural resources, as I was able to gain valuable experience within the forest industry and within government working on wildlife issues. The NRSC program also focuses on a wide range of disciplines in the natural resource sector to understand the many components required to manage and solve problems.

Currently, I have begun a Masters Degree program with Simon Fraser University to examine the long term impacts of forest harvesting on mountain caribou habitat near Blue River BC. The project is a joint initiative between Weyerhaeuser Canada, Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Forests and will use computer modeling to simulate the effects of various forest management scenarios on the suitability of caribou habitat over time.
