Karen supported site with numerous environmental projects, including facilitating a team to clarify the direction for a project to reclaim the existing above ground tailings facility.

Karen’s management helped unite managers and experts from various internal and external sources toward a clear objective, and to keep our desired trust with our community and regulatory agencies. Her proposed options helped us to do this with lowest cost possible and avoided us spending potentially millions of dollars if this project was not managed well while delivering results for our stakeholders and caring for the environment.

Gaining the support and buy-in from your internal stakeholders can be a difficult thing. Your teams see a change as extra work, a passing initiative that might be replaced with another in a few years, or worse, they can't see how their contribution fits into the big picture, so they don't put much effort into it.

YOU CAN GAIN TRACTION

    Karen worked with me for several years during my tenure as Cameco’s Vice President Environmental Leadership. Our group was established to move the company and its operating sites to breakthrough environmental performance and to build and sustain the necessary stakeholder trust to ensure the long-term sustainability and growth of our business.

    Karen is very bright and was a valued and dedicated member of our team. She not only brought her significant geotechnical knowledge and experience to our team, she was fun to work with. She was always willing to challenge conventional thinking on a whole range of environmental performance and sustainability issues and convince others of what might be possible.

    She is also a very grounded person and brought a practical dimension to our team as we explored what might be possible. She understood that it was necessary to find the sweet spot, where driving for breakthrough environmental performance would also contribute to the overall growth and success of our business.

    I wish her success in her future endeavours, and would highly recommend her to prospective employers and/or clients.
