Julia Hill : Growing Her Career in Forestry

Julia Hill started with J.D. Irving, Limited as a summer student, tree planting in Central New Brunswick. When she was offered a role at Grand Lake Timber - the sawmill in Chipman, New Brunswick - she jumped at the chance.

"The sawmill is full opportunities for growth, just like JDI. I went from tree planting to the maintenance crew in Chipman, where I’ve now completed multiple co-op terms. There’s never a dull moment, and I’m constantly being challenged by both my environment and my colleagues,” said Julia.

Julia is a second generation JDI employee, her dad and brother both work at the Pulp Mill in Saint John. While on her co-ops she was an exemplary student, the kind that are welcomed back every time. We're excited to have Julia returning to Grand Lake Timber Sawmill full time after she graduates!
