After graduating with Honours in Civil Engineering from a technical college, Adele got her start with a consulting engineering firm in northern Ontario as a contract administrator, and was active in the field on several large infrastructure projects.
She gained further field experience working for a major Canadian general contractor as project coordinator, following which she put her field experience in contracts and project management to use as a claims analyst and consultant in Montreal.
