I am currently in the Canadian Forces ROTP program at the Royal Military College of Canada.  I have completed two years in aeronautical engineering and just switched over to space sciences for my third year.  I expect to graduate in 2009 and then work as a pilot in the Air Force.  So far, I have completed the first of a three phase pilot training program, Primary Flight Training (PFT), last summer in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba. 

I arrived at the CSA in May 2008 to gain experience in Space Sciences.  I am a participant in the Educators Project in the North and will travel with members of the field party to Axel Heiberg Island, Nunavut.  My responsibilities include logistics, preparation of an Operations Manual, testing geophysical instruments, and acting as liaison between project leaders and participants.
