By training, I am an Agricultural Economist, with a M.Sc.(2014) from the University of Saskatchewan. Currently, I am a Research Officer in the Department of Agricultural & Resource Economics, where I spend my time working on data, surveys, carrying out general research and editing. In addition to my research, I have the pleasure of communicating about agriculture, sciences, and food through the blog SAIFood.ca, which I manage for my wonderful boss.
I am a number cruncher, problem solver, and whole picture thinker, that is probably why I jump at with glee for projects that involve transportation, logistics, and GIS! My other interests in research are supply chains and business development. But it's not all numbers and data. I think creativity and visual representation is an important piece of how we learn. If you're looking for assistance with graphic designs, marketing, or making maps, I would be happy to help. Visual representations are just as important as the numbers or words on a page, and I love helping bring a creative side to data.
While I never thought my skill set would include web design, I have found it to be a fun creative outlook. I have experience in building pages through WordPress and Wix platforms, which both offer great services for different needs. If you would like to discuss setting up your own platform, I would be happy to consult you on the process, or set it up for you!
