WISE NL ROLES: Vice President, Director of Communications
EDUCATION: Diploma of Technology in Nautical Science
I have a background and undergraduate degree in International Development Studies focusing on International Political Economy; however, after a couple of years living abroad I became intrigued by the idea of being a Captain of sailing or merchant marine vessel .
To pursue this dream I attended the Marine Institute in Newfoundland and Labrador in the certificate program Diploma of Technology in Nautical Science. I continued on to do a work term offshore Newfoundland and Labrador on an Offshore Supply Vessel which was a very eye opening experience.
I loved the hard physical work, out of doors, and on the ocean, but found it difficult to be at sea for extended periods of time. I now do not work at sea, but onshore, as a facility manager and administrator for a contracting company that works within the offshore oil and gas industry. I work on technical reports, safety training program development, coordinating logistics for our offshore instructors, and have a hands on role making sure the day to day workings of the company runs smoothly and safely.
