Appointed May 11, 2017 and nominated by the Yukon Government.
I have enjoyed life in the Yukon for thirty three years. My working career spans forty years including the public government sector and in recent years consulting.
Yukon work has primarily focused on sustainable development/ natural resource management, land claims preparedness and implementation, devolution of resource management programs from Canada to Yukon, multi-party negotiations and agreements, as well as partnerships and shared initiatives to facilitate responsible development. Work with First Nations and public governments, resource industry, and in multi-party arrangements have all been enriching and fulfilling.
I worked with Yukon Government from 2000 to 2006 in Economic Development and Energy Mines and Resources on senior management teams. Recent work has included collaboration in the design and implementation of a comprehensive multi-party socio-economic monitoring program working with Selkirk First nation, Yukon government and Minto Explorations Ltd.
Work with Indian and Northern Affairs Canada during the eighties and nineties included renewable resource management; environmental assessment of Yukon major projects; economic development through multi- party agreements; and work with negotiators to conclude Umbrella Final Agreement negotiations and prepare for devolution and land claims implementation.
