I returned to school to further my Geographic Information Systems education after more than a decade in the geomatics industry. Selkirk College's Advanced GIS program offered the latest in industry-standard software and tools, which is what I was looking for.

Going back to college helped me improve my resume and improve my grades that I required to put me at the top. And I don’t think I would have gotten into grad school without the mentorship I received at Selkirk College. Instructors really care about you. I am so thankful for that.

I learned quickly that being a backcountry ranger also means being a jack of all trades, and I feel the RFW program set me up perfectly for the position.
