Chelsea Renaud


Ocean Wise Ambassador – 2021 Cohort

A bit about me: 

I am currently working on a graduate degree in Environmental Science at Acadia University after finishing my undergraduate degree here in May 2019. I get to work on a main water reservoir in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and assess the metals of concern to the water treatment plant. It has been a very rewarding experience already because I am able to provide some insight on watershed management to the municipal government. I hope to be able to work on remediating contaminated sites as a career to maintain healthy ecosystems! I am originally from Ottawa, ON and moved here for school, but also so I could be closer to the ocean.

What gets me up in the morning?

Lately, since the pandemic started and there really isn’t anywhere to go, and you can’t see anyone, I have been getting up for the pure excitement of an iced coffee and a nice breakfast. We deserve it these days!! Since I am working form home I try to go for a daily walk while talking to family to try and maintain a good headspace.

Something random: 

I cracked my head open on the metal bars of the top bunk while putting a fitted sheet on the bottom bunk. What I have learnt form this experience?? ALWAYS choose the top bunk.
