Jamie’s career as an Ironworker began in 2002. Working in a male-dominated industry Jamie enjoys the physical challenge and the ever-changing scope of work. She enjoys being one of the boys and is seen as an equal among her male counter parts. In 2003 Jamie became extremely passionate about promoting opportunities in the skilled trades to others.
Jamie began networking with tradesmen and women in Canada and the U.S.A. to better understand and identify the needs and challenges for outreach and recruitment. After much research Jamie solidified her program vision and officially founded Journeyman in 2012. Her efforts attracted notice in local and national media outlets; her story has been highlighted through national advertising campaigns. Since then, she’s continued to expand the Journeyman initiative through her outreach and advocacy.
Jamie continues to take on increasingly skills-intensive projects as an Industrial Boilermaker/Ironworker/Welder while representing the Journeyman initiative at local, provincial, national and international events.
