My name is Shelly Leighton. I am a Professional Engineer and commissioned Canada Lands Surveyor. I spent a number of years working in offshore construction in many places around the world, but have yet to experience Canada’s Arctic. The SOI program is a dream come true for me!
I’m currently an Instructor with the Ocean Mapping Program at Marine Institute in St. John’s Newfoundland. It is an exciting program with so many opportunities to experience the world upon graduation, I’m grateful to be a part of the Marine Institute.
My travels to the North will have me missing my two children and my husband (not to mention the cat and dog!) but I’m sure the experience will be worth it.
