Meet Kathy, Dan, and Amanda

March 14, 2016:

JDI is proud to share new stories of our employees in the next wave of the company’s “I’m With JDI” campaign which began March 14 in New Brunswick.

Dan is a coach of his local baseball team and has been with JDI for over 30 years. The accounting program at NBCC and one co-op placement landed him a career at JDI that has included many of our diverse operations. With the support, training and MBA that JDI provided, Dan has grown his career at home in New Brunswick.

Kathy started out as a nurse and in her thirties made a big career change, going back to NBCC to become a Power Engineer. Kathy was afraid the career change would mean a move out West but she now has a career in the trades at Irving Paper without having to leave her Saint John home.

Amanda has followed in the footsteps of her Dad. UNB got her started with a great Engineering program, and her goal was to stay in New Brunswick after graduation. She’s growing her career at Irving Equipment, working on large, complex lift projects with some of the newest equipment in the world.  And her kids are close to family and friends all the time.
