Environmental Management
Thunder Bay, Ontario 

“I came to Lakehead in 2006, and during my time at Lakehead in the Faculty of Forestry and the Forest Environment (now Faculty of Natural Resources Management), I had a chance to explore several options for my path within the larger forestry field. I settled on an interest in using technology, aerial images and computer algorithms, to try and explore new ways of understanding the forest. This interest carried over into my undergraduate thesis project and after graduation, I gained employment with KBM Resources Group in Thunder Bay and have been working in the field of remote sensing ever since. My degree allowed me to gain employment in town in my field of interest and provides new and interesting challenges everyday. Without the ability to tailor my degree to my interests, I never would have been able to learn the skills necessary to get the job I have now.”
