As life often calls us to take detours, we need to know how to adapt to the situations we face. I started out in the construction industry as a carpenter in my hometown, Baie-Comeau. And yes, it’s not blood flowing through my veins, it’s fir gum. In 2016, I had to resign myself to changing my vocation. Being the third generation of carpenters, it was unthinkable to stray too far from the job site. So I went back to studying architectural technology at Cégep de Rimouski. Today I am fortunate to be able to pursue my passion in a team that allows me to put my knowledge into practice as a project manager. What I love most about my job is to complete a project, no matter the size of it, while bringing together people from all disciplines and towards the same common goal, without forgetting the human side.
