What makes you a good mentor?

I struggled initially to find a job right out of school, and have since changed jobs several times while trying to find a career path that really resonates with me. It was through a lot of hard work, the support of friends and family, the help of my Carleton Alumni Mentor, and kind people in the industry that were willing to take the time to give me advice that got me to where I am today! I would like to support new and upcoming graduates the way that I was supported, and pass on the advice that I have been given and the hard lessons I've learned, especially as a young woman working in the engineering industry. This program really is an amazing resource for those just getting started in their careers.

About Hannah Pepper

I recently started working with Tiree as a Junior Project Manager, providing sustainability consulting services to the Government of Canada to ensure the sustainability of the buildings in the Parliamentary Precinct.

After graduating I wanted to try a few engineering paths to gain some experience before settling on one that I like, so I now have a broad background in the energy field, municipal stormwater management/sewer design, as well as hazardous building material surveys and air quality testing.

As for my personal life, I like to stay busy through recreational sports, outdoor activities and volunteering.
