From Alberta, With Love.
“I’m from Calgary, but I’ve been coming to the Collingwood area ever since I was little to visit my aunt. I’m pretty active, so when I thought about a place where I really wanted to live and build my career, Collingwood came to mind right away.”
“It’s a department that concentrates on water and wastewater and I get to contribute on a variety of projects, from designing wastewater treatment systems for resorts and small communities to site assessments across Ontario and environmental assessment planning,” beams Clayton. “Every project is slightly different. I never know what I’ll be working on next. I love the challenges and the variety.”
And that’s just outside of work. Aside from her engineering duties, Clayton is Chair of the Social Committee, planning company-wide events across all offices. She started up a twice-weekly yoga lunch session at the Collingwood office
“Coming into the area and not knowing anyone my own age, I knew how others would feel, so I created a little group in our work community for people new to Collingwood and new to the area.”
Asked if she misses Calgary, Clayton maintains that she misses her family, but likes the accessibility of Collingwood compared to a big city. “Getting established here feels like a natural step in my growth.”
