Some of our amazing energy problem solvers have grown with us from students to leaders — innovating, developing new solutions, and pushing us forward as we transition to cleaner energy that also meets the world’s demand. Jaimie, Sawyer and Brea shared letters to their younger selves with memorable moments and advice they wish they had known at the beginning of their careers.
Jaimie started her career with us 16 years ago as a student and is now our Director of Communications.
“One of the most memorable experiences from my career was seeing trust built over time with community leaders along the Coastal GasLink project route. It didn’t happen overnight — but gaining letters of support and advocacy from key opinion leaders after years of engagement was extremely rewarding.
I thrive on seeing my team achieve success and reach their full potential. My mantra is ‘look beyond the ask’ – it’s something I remind my team as we approach opportunities and obstacles.”
Jaimie’s advice to her younger self – “Speak up. You probably have an idea that will spark something big!”
Sawyer began his career with us as a summer student in USNG and is now a Project Manager executing a portfolio of natural gas pipeline integrity maintenance projects.
“Some of the best advice that I ever received at the beginning of my career was that ‘change is the only constant in life.’ Embracing change has played a crucial role in the success of any project I have worked on and presented many opportunities for me to grow and step out of my comfort zone.
Each year I speak at our TCE student orientation — I am always excited to meet the amazing students we hire. The future is bright at TCE, and I am eager to continue to learn, problem solve and innovate for our energy future.”
Brea joined TCE as a student on our Program Management team and is now an Applications Product Developer in our IS Department.
“When I think about the future, I am excited by the thought of growing my career with TCE. A goal of mine is to eventually become a product manager of an innovative tool I am passionate about.
One thing I would tell my younger self is that it is okay to make mistakes and not know all the answers. Having the courage to try new things and risk failure will take you farther than you think.”
