Mondshine joins Stantec after nearly 30 years of experience as a business leader and technical consultant in greenhouse gas accounting, policy development, mitigation, resilience, and adaptation for firms based in the United States and Canada with global reach.

I believe that in Stantec, I have found a critical mass of talented staff with a depth of knowledge and corporate culture to make a global impact.”
