Samantha Brett does not subscribe to the outdated perception that oil and gas development is at odds with environmental goals. In this episode we’ll explore how Samantha, the Director and CEO of Iron Oaks Environmental, took her passion for the environment and put it to work in the energy sector.

When a family friend asked if she wanted to apply her education in environmental science to pipeline construction in Alberta, Samantha promptly flew to Edmonton from Muskoka, Ontario. And the rest, she says, is history.  

Today, she makes a real difference in how Canada constructs and delivers its energy projects. She takes great pride in the industry’s environmental stewardship, and a lot of the work and research she does is sought after by environmental groups and government agencies.
