2014/2015 Executive Council

President- Derek Hayes


Hey Everyone! My name is Derek Hayes and I’m the President of P.S. Warren this year. I’m in my 4th and final year of geology, focussing on the soft rock side of things. I spent last summer in Calgary working for Cenovus, so I was able to get out to the mountains to hike and camp a lot. Hopefully we can meet a lot of new people and have a great year together!

VP External- Tessa Wilson


Hello, my name is Tessa Wilson and I’ll be your VP External for this year. I’m currently in my 4th year of Geology and I had the opportunity to spend an amazing summer working for ConocoPhillips. I love hiking and biking, and if I could spend everyday atop a mountain I would. We have lots of exciting events ahead of us and I can’t wait to start another year of adventures with all of my fellow rock lovers!

VP Internal- Chelsey Hay


Hey there! I’m Chelsey Hay and I will be serving as VP Internal for the 2014-2015 school year. This means I will be a liaison between PS Warren and the EAS Department, as well as the greater University community. I am in the 4th year of my BSc in Geology and I can’t wait to make the most of my last year here at the U of A! I have been fortunate to spend the last two summers interning for Tourmaline Oil Corp. and ConocoPhillips, respectively, and I hope to continue my experience in petroleum exploration post-graduation. Outside of geology I love hiking, horseback riding, and traveling. Feel free to email me at chay@ualberta.ca with any concerns.

Social Convener- Jen Benyon


I am a fourth year geology undergraduate at the UofA and will be graduating in April 2015. Over the summer I was working in Fort McMurray for Dr. Carl Mendoza as a hydrogeology research assistant. I am now continuing that research by characterizing the hydraulic conductivities of the materials used to reclaim an oil sand mine. I am the Social Convenor of the P.S. Warren Geological Society and I am looking forward to bringing our members together to network and, most importantly, have some fun!

Social Convener- Maya LaGrange


Hey everyone, my name is Maya LaGrange. I’m from Kelowna, a 3rd year geology student, and most importantly, one of your social conveners for this year! I love people just as much as I love rocks so I’m excited to plan some awesome events to make sure this year is a blast!

Hi there! My name is Nicole Brazzoni and I will be one of the Sports reps for 2014/2015. I’m in my third/fourth year here at UofA and loving every minute of it! I spent my summer living in Canmore, hiking any mountain I could get to and exploring every inch of Kananaskis. I’m looking forward to another awesome year with some great geologists. If you’re interested in any intramural sports with P. S. Warren please send me an email!
