Meet Hannah Anderson.

Community Relations Liaison

Coquitlam, BC

What inspired you to enter and pursue this field?

I strongly believe in finding creative ways to use Canada’s natural resources while protecting the environment and moving towards a more sustainable society.

How did you come to be in this position?

I’ve always appreciated FortisBC’s commitment to the environment and valuable engagement with stakeholder and other partners. While working in the political field, I developed a stakeholder relationship with a few of the folks from their team, and when I moved back to BC I looked into joining the company.

What advice would you give young women looking to enter your current line of work?

One of my career mentors reminded me to “always put your hand up”. Really it’s a reminder to take hold of new opportunities and growth even when you are uncertain. Be kind and judicious. Being kind to people will take you far, but being judicious and smart about your decisions and work relationships will take you further.
