After university, I was a looking for a job and unsure of how to put my science degree to good use. I started at FortWhyte as a school program volunteer and was then asked to join the education team. Now, I work in educating, inspiring and encouraging kids to be more sustainable — it’s super rewarding to be on the front lines of social change.
