Melanie Popp Passionate Engineer Calgary, Alberta

Born and raised on a family farm in Saskatchewan, Melanie grew up knowing that the livelihood of her family depended on the health of the land and the availability of fuel. Her keen understanding of the need to have both has shaped her successful 15-year career as a hydraulic fracture design engineer.

“Engineers wear a ring on our finger for a reason; it reminds us that we have a responsibility to the public to conduct our work in a sustainable and safe manner,” she says. “I take that responsibility very seriously.”

Frustrated by the amount of oil and natural gas Canada imports from foreign countries, Melanie became an Energy Citizen to talk about the importance of our country’s resources and voice her support for Canada’s own energy industry. “We wouldn’t stand to have agricultural products like beef and wheat imported at such a high volume,” Melanie says. “I felt I needed to start having conversations about Canada’s energy with my family and friends.”
