Quel est votre rôle au sein du GTNO?
I conduct government-funded research in the field to better understand the ecosystem. I also research, observe, analyze and monitor animal habitats in the Sahtu region to determine population, pollution, health and predator-prey dynamics.
Comment le GTNO a-t-il soutenu votre avancement et votre perfectionnement professionnels?
I am grateful to the GNWT for my career. I would never have thought it possible to be pursuing a career I love at home in the Northwest Territories.
Dans quelles circonstances avez-vous commencé à travailler au GTNO?
I started with the GNWT as an intern under the Northern Graduate Employment Program, after graduating from the University of Alberta in 2008. I was delighted to work with Terry Armstrong, Bison Biologist in Fort Smith. After my one-year term ended, I was hired as a casual to assist with any research needs and to look after the Bison Control Area. In January 2010, I began work in Norman Wells as the Cumulative Effects Biologist, and have been loving it here ever since.
Pourquoi aimez-vous travailler au GTNO?
The work I do helps people make decisions on how to better protect and preserve wildlife populations. I am also able to help people understand more about the wildlife they share a home with.

De quelle façon croyez-vous que votre travail a une incidence positive sur la vie des Ténois?
I am responsible for wildlife throughout my region. I monitor their status, habitat and health, assess impacts from human activities, and regulate wildlife protection and use. Wildlife is a large part of the Northwest Territories’ identity, culture and spirit. Protecting our animals for future generations is a big responsibility.
