Margaret Fenton, P.Ag.

 “She offered to act as my mentor when I moved to Fort St. John and has been guiding me through the articling process in a considerate and professional manner. Margaret has made an effort to consider my interests as a young environmental professional and it is clear that she considers who I am as an individual before offering advice.  Her contribution to the BCIA is significant and I believe she is deserving of Mentor of the Year.”
