Meet Kelsie Norton Our New Program Assistant

Posted November 10, 2018 by LSC

I have a deep passion for the environment which started at a young age. I thoroughly enjoy camping in the Rocky Mountains, watching wildlife and exploring water bodies. This gave me the foundation to have an overall respect for nature. It made me pursue a career in the environmental sector so I obtained a Diploma in Renewable Resources from NAIT’s Biological Science Program.

I have a very broad back ground of experience, from working with Whirling Disease, the Sturgeon River monitoring and educating about environmental awareness. Giving me industry knowledge of aquatic biology, fisheries management and how to convey these issues to all ages of a community or business.

My partner and I are recent owners of an acreage in Lac Ste. Anne County, giving me room for my passions such as exploring, gardening and spending time outdoors with family and friends. I also have a 1 year old son, who is the light in my life, and a puppy that adores the acreage just as much as we do.

I’m very delighted to bring my skills to the LSC team. The program assistant position holds many opportunities to learn and contribute on a variety of levels. Having previously been employed by Nature Alberta as a Shoreline Advisor, it provides me with a comfortable familiarity in this new position.

I look forward to engaging stewardship partners and assisting local efforts towards implementing their goals.
