"What excites me about Yukon Energy is that the territory is at a pivotal place in its evolution. As Yukon continues to grow, it is facing financial, economic, and demographic challenges and opportunities." 

A healthy Yukon needs energy to power its needs, and as a startup entrepreneur and urban planner, I bring a strong commitment to making the territory a vibrant and self-reliant place to live.
