"Lakehead and Thunder Bay helped me discover who I was going to become. The faculty were supportive and passionate about what they were teaching. They gave us perspectives outside of the topics covered in class. My professors helped review my resumé when I was completing my studies, and for a few years after graduating, the Faculty would send me job opportunities by email. In my program I studied plant identification, habitats, data collection, statistics, environmental law – this was very useful in the bigger scheme of things, and I applied these skills in the field positions I had before becoming a Project Coordinator."
