"Geological Engineering teaches you how to work hard play hard and which rocks should be licked"

Hometown: North Vancouver, BC

Program: Geological Engineering

Current year: 4th

Why I chose Geological Sciences or Geological Engineering:

Any career where there’s an option of working outdoors instead of on a computer is the right career for me!

The professor(s) or course which has influenced me the most so far:

It is so hard to pick only a few courses or professors! If I have to, Professor Vriens and his hydrology course and Professor Narbonne and his paleontology course have been the most influential so far. They both were courses that I never imagined could be included in Geological Engineering. I really enjoyed the hands on, less mathy, History of Life course, and the environmental aspect of Hydrology.

Most memorable Queen’s experience so far:

Has got to be frosh week, as a first year and as a second year! It really makes Eng feel like a family and it’s where I made some of my closest friends!

What do you like to do in your spare time?:

Like every other geologist ever, I like to hike, ski, rock climb, and a good brewery! Maybe some less obvious hobbies are biking, embroidery, and reading.

After I graduate, I:

plan to move to France! Geological Engineering is probably the most versatile location-wise out of all the disciplines, so I want to make the most of that and get the 5 years experience needed for your P.Eng certification from as many countries as possible!
