MARCH'S SPEAKER: Vickie Jensen

"Deep, Dark & Dangerous": BC's Undersea Tech Industry

About the speaker:

Vickie Jensen has built her writing career around the importance of documenting and celebrating work. As editor of Westcoast Mariner magazine she travelled on coastal tugs, charter yachts, dredges, ferries and water taxis for nearly four years, interviewing skippers, crews and owners about maritime life. She is the author of Saltwater Women at Work and Working These Waters, and coauthor of the children's book Build Your Own Underwater Robot and Other Wet Projects. For three decades, she and her husband Jay Powell have also worked with First Nations elders to produce more than thirty schoolbooks, documenting a variety of Native languages spoken on the Northwest Coast. She lives in Vancouver, BC.
