I moved to Conservation Ontario in July 2020, to the role of Drinking Water Source Protection Manager. Previously, I worked at Kawartha Conservation, in Lindsay, Ontario, in the role of the Water Quality Specialist, for 5 years, but have been working in the field of water quality since 2008. Other experience includes teaching at Lakehead University in Orillia as a Laboratory Instructor and Contract Lecturer. I hold a M.Sc. (Biology) a B.Ed., and an HBASc in Interdisciplinary studies, from Lakehead University. I am a strong proponent of proactive measures to protect our drinking water resources.
