One of her very first words was “Why” and since the day she asked her first question she hasn't stopped.
She is passionately curious and loves to use science and innovation to solve big problems. An acclaimed innovator and social entrepreneur, Kelcie started her research into developing novel remediation methods for the Alberta Oil Sands at just 15 and by 21 she had founded her first company, MycoRemedy. She is a dedicated environmentalist and fierce industry advocate, with her sights set on changing the way the world remediates. Kelcie has been recognized several times as an up and coming leader in both oil and gas and sustainability as well as receiving numerous awards for her work as an environmentalist, innovator, and scientist. She is one of Canadas Top 20 Under 20, Next 36, and a Manning Youth Innovation award winner.
Passionate about creating change, she believes one of the best ways to create the largest impact is by empowering the next generation of changemakers. She aims to encourage the next generation to treat their age as an advantage and embrace their curious side.
