Aleta’s unique background in diversified projects and industries range from operations in the challenging and unforgiving Canadian High Arctic to International Clean Energy projects.
She has supported early to mid-stage projects in Nuclear/SMR, Solar/Wind, Construction, Mining to Global Capital Markets and in various roles from Executive Leadership to Strategy, Operations, Human Resources and Community/Indigenous Engagement.
She aims to be a catalyst for change that creates efficiency, a culturally favorable and inclusive environment, and infrastructure growth/development opportunities, nationally and internationally.
Her years of experience showed her the criticality of passion on topics such as climate change, arctic environment, inclusion & diversity, and infrastructure growth. A female, from a small northern town, with nontraditional experiences (at times), aims to support a shift and be a voice of change for others as we continue to grow our global community in the clean and renewable industry while meeting our net zero carbon emission targets provincially, nationally, and internationally.
Aleta looks forward to bringing her unconventional knowledge and experience in industries and roles, her team approach based on perseverance, integrity, and confidence with humility in the face of challenges to support and facilitate growth in the Clean and Renewable Energy sector.
