I completed my first co-op work term with ES Cropconsult Ltd, an agricultural consulting company specializing in integrated pest management. My job as a first-time scout was to monitor potato and pea crops for insect pests and fungal diseases. I enjoyed my work term far more than I expected. I formed friendships with my fellow scouts that I know will last. Working for ES last summer allowed me to enhance my attention to detail as well as to become faster and more accurate in pest identification.

he first four months of my time as the Quality Control Supervisor at the West Fraser Mills veneer plant in Slave Lake has allowed me to learn a lot about the wood industry in general as well as the specific challenges facing veneer and plywood manufacturing. I learned a lot about the little details that can’t be conveyed in a lecture.

I was lucky enough to get a placement in my hometown, which greatly helped me navigate the transition from the academia to research. I primarily assisted with the set-up and organization of a large-scale greenhouse trial and learned a lot about the practical nature of research. To say I have a newfound respect for researchers is an understatement! I also had a chance to do field work, mainly measuring the height and diameter of a long-term genetic poplar trial near Athabasca.

I was in the department of sustainable development in Hainan Jinhua Forestry Company Ltd., which is one of the biggest forest companies in China. I felt so lucky because our company was preparing to pass the FSC certification and other certifications due to the decline of domestic paper industry when I joined them. I prepared for the FSC certification before I arrived in China, taught workers the importance of using helmet and other safety equipment and how to use GPS tools as well as playing a pivotal role in teaching my coworkers to protect wildlife.
