Janet has close to 20 years’ of work experience in the environmental consulting field and on construction environmental monitoring (CEM) projects. After completing her B.Sc. in microbiology at the University of Victoria, she started her career with Levelton Consultants Ltd. where she spent 13 years working on contaminated sites and construction projects as the Environmental Group Leader and Senior Project Manager. After a year with Strategic Natural Resource Consultants as a Senior Project Manager, she worked with EDI for three years as the Business Development Manager, in charge of strategic initiatives and external business development, primarily in the mining sector.
Her expertise in managing multiple, multidisciplinary projects makes her an excellent addition to the Ecofish team as a Project Manager who helps maintain scope and budget integrity. Rygnestad’s ability to work well under pressure, combined with her understanding of incorporating environmental regulatory requirements into active construction and long-term monitoring projects, make her a real asset to the Ecofish management team.
