Over the years, Liza supported and contributed to a number of greenfield and brownfield projects in Canada and the States with both Owner and EPC firms.
Reflecting on her time spent on construction sites, Liza recalls a particularly memorable experience that involved procurement. It was during the fire rebuild of a refinery in the States where she was a member of the Contracts & Procurement team. As the project progressed, Liza witnessed firsthand the remarkable power of camaraderie among the various groups involved.
On this site, trust and respect were not just buzzwords; they were the foundation upon which the entire project was built. The collaborative spirit was infections, as team members from different disciplines and backgrounds came together, united by a shared goal. Liza recognized that building strong relationships based on trust and respect was instrumental in the success of the supply chain.
