“I am inspired every time I see a student glowing from excitement when they talk about how much they enjoy STEM topics, take part in an experiment or learn a new fact!”
Position: SSH&E Communications Advisor
Time volunteering with Let’s Talk Science: Since 2018
Why do you volunteer with Let’s Talk Science? Through my role at ExxonMobil Canada, I provide support services to the Hibernia Project. Hibernia is a major sponsor of Let’s Talk Science. We believe getting students excited about STEM will result in more students pursuing studies in engineering, technology and trades, which is important to our industry and our province. Personally, I also admire Let’s Talk Science’s ability to make STEM fun and engaging. The programming appeals to a wide range of interests and learning styles.
Inspirational Moment: I am inspired every time I see a student glowing from excitement when they talk about how much they enjoy STEM topics, take part in an experiment or learn a new fact!
