What our happy customers are saying

Rob Penny
Owner, Pencore Developments Inc.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Shannen while she developed and implemented our HSE program. Shannen is dedicated to creating a more sustainable, green business environment, and continues to find new ways to improve the environmental impact people are having on the environment. Her attention to detail and innovative thinking are outstanding, and her focus on creating a more sustainable green business environment is refreshing. Her environmental program creation such as company composting, increased recycling and waste reduction programs are a true model for other companies to follow. I have no reservations about recommending Shannon and Lake Country Environmental & HSE Services to any company that is looking on improving their Health, Safety, and Environmental programs.”

“Shannen was very knowledgeable, approachable and very helpful to various  Fort Hills project members.  She was an important member of the Regulatory and Environment team at Fort Hills. Her  role was key to providing communication between the engineering, construction and health, safety and environment teams and bringing expertise of the Canadian regulatory/environmental framework to these areas. She provided valuable insight into applying regulations and environmental protection guidelines to the field level – her passion for the environment and biological systems driving her forward-thinking work ethic.”
