The current is president of the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society is Tam Huynh.
I am employed as a professional archaeologist with Golder Associates Ltd. in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I received my BA (Honours) degree in 2006 and my MA degree in 2010, both of which were obtained from the University of Saskatchewan. I started working in the Cultural Resource Management sector in 2007 and have been consistently employed with a variety of companies throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan since. I have also been fortunate enough to have worked for, and been mentored by archaeologists that I have the utmost respect for. Without their guidance and support, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
I have held a number of positions with various professional organizations. I was Treasurer (2010-2012) and Vice-President (2014-2015) of the Saskatchewan Association of Professional Archaeologists, the former Chapter Representative of the Saskatoon Archaeological Society (2007-2013), and the former First-Vice President of the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society (2013-2015). Currently, I am the President of the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society and the co-chair for the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society’s First Nation and Métis Liaison Committee.
When I first started university, I wanted to become a veterinarian. After selecting all the necessary pre-requisites for the program, I needed to take some electives. I decided to take Anthropology and Archaeology and as the adage goes, “the rest is history”.
I am an avid guitarist and have been playing, writing and recording music for the past 18 years.
