After traveling the world for 15 years, she returned home to Quebec with her partner and a baby boy who was to be born a few months after her return. And because life has to be lived, she then told herself that the time had come to give life to her passion for maps, geolocation and the integration of new technologies. Geomatics has clearly proven to be the best option. She is therefore about to finish her first year at Cégep de Limoilou in Quebec, and this summer will also begin an internship with the Quebec Ministry of Transport.

Serianna Schroh

Serianna Schroh was born and raised in Cranbrook, BC at the heart of the East Kootenays. The small country town allowed her to enjoy the beautiful outdoors every day. Serianna spends the majority of her leisure time fishing the local rivers and lakes on her family’s boat. During the fall she is out hunting in the Rocky Mountains every chance she gets. Serianna has also been involved in the local Kyokushin Karate Club for over 12 years. In high school, drafting was one of her passions, achieving top grades in her cohort. This lead to work experience at McElhanney during her final year of high school, where she was able to shadow many disciplines of engineering and geomatics. She was instantly drawn to surveying knowing that it would be her future career. After graduating high school Serianna traveled to Australia on a year-long Rotary Youth Exchange. Returning from Australia, she began the two-year Geomatics Engineering Technology Diploma program at BCIT. Following the diploma, Serianna decided to continue her studies and enroll in the next two years for the Geomatics Degree program. She has recently completed her third year of the Geomatics program. The summer after her first year, Serianna was hired by WSP where she works in the field building her knowledge in all aspects of surveying. She is now entering her third summer with WSP, traveling all over the province of BC. Soon after graduation in April 2020, she aims to begin articling to obtain her land surveyors commission in BC.

Meghan McLellan

Meghan McLellan grew up in the Bulkley Valley, where she was fortunate to experience all of the natural wonders that abound in Northern BC.  She spent much of her time hiking and fishing at the family cabin which is where her love for the outdoors became apparent.  When she graduated from Smithers Secondary School, Meghan moved to Kamloops to take the Architectural & Engineering Design Technology program at TRU, with the long-term goal of becoming an Architect.  After her second year of University she was hired as a summer student by a Smithers surveying company, HBH Land Surveying Inc., and that is where she was first introduced to the world of Geomatics.  She went to TRU for one more year to obtain her diploma and then returned to work for HBH, an amazing company that kept mentoring her and expanding her practical office and field knowledge.  Because of this experience, Meghan changed her career goal to become a Surveyor.  After a year of travelling through Europe and Kenya, Meghan applied for the advanced placement Geomatics program at BCIT.  Meghan is just finishing her second year of the Geomatics program, and is planning on attending BCIT for two more years to obtain her degree in Geomatics.  This year she was one of 5 students from BCIT selected to attend the CHC-NCS Conference in Victoria where she could learn more about hydrography and all the amazing research happening in the industry.

Please join us in congratulating Meghan!
