“What excites me about Yukon Energy is being part of the process to meet the challenges of new technologies, values and methodologies.”

I wanted to use the knowledge I gained from serving for 10 years on the Yukon Utilities Board to contribute in building Yukon’s delivery of energy to stakeholders in the most responsible and efficient method possible. We live in a culturally and naturally rich part of the world with a lifestyle that is hard to replicate anywhere. This dynamic makes Yukon an exciting place to live, and an interesting time in the delivery of energy to stakeholders.
