I first came to Churchill in the spring of 2000 to work at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre as the Program Coordinator. I was lucky enough to participate in a Polar Bear Behavior research project with Kim Daley (2002-2004) and spent two summers as the Summer Research Technician (2003-2004). By late 2004, I officially became a Churchill resident when my partner Matt and I purchased a small remote cabin at Spruce Ridge (about 6km West of the CNSC). In 2006, I completed my Bachelor͛s degree and became the Full Time Research Technician at the CNSC. It was an exciting time to be working here, as the plans for the new building were truly becoming a reality. After the Grand Opening of the new CNSC facility (2011), I took a small hiatus from Churchill to live in Thompson, Manitoba. Over the course of the following 5 years I completed an Apprenticeship Program, was awarded a Red Seal as a Power Electrician and started a Family. After my son Mason was born, we wanted more than anything to raise him in the North, so I am very pleased to have been given the opportunity to return to the CNSC as the Sustainability Coordinator
