Lisa has an M.Sc. in Structural geology from the University of Calgary. She began her career hunting for naturally fractured reservoirs in the Alberta Foothills before taking a career pause to raise her two daughters. Lisa is now re-engaging with her career and leveraging her experience with natural fractures to address geomechanical challenges in the energy sector.
Lisa is a “serial joiner” whether running student clubs in her university days, becoming president of the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Calgary, chairing the School Council at her kids school or joining professional groups like GeoWomen she can’t seem to stop volunteering for stuff.
In between career building, volunteering and caring for her family you’ll find Lisa walking, reading, waging war against slugs in her veggie garden, working on her coding skills or enjoying a cold pint with friends in the Barley Belt.
Lisa is passionate about public education, active transportation, de-polarization of energy and environment discussions and the value of non-linear career paths.
