“My #AeroPassion is safety.”
Romina's Biography

Since obtaining my degree in Chemical Engineering from UBC, I have donned Tyvek suits complemented by full face masks (glamorous, I know); gone cross-eyed counting asbestos fibres; digested sewage; made worm puree; stirred and sampled molten gold; got chased by dogs while tracing buried pipelines; and finally, after too much excitement, settled to work with cyanide and chromium instead… These experiences began in an environmental consulting firm in BC, to an analytical lab, a precious metals company in Ontario, a natural gas distributor and now, an aerospace firm in Manitoba. I am looking for my next adventure, though – hopefully, back in BC!

Senior Process Engineer – provide global support to StandardAero facilities on cleaning, stripping, plating, etc. of aircraft engines; oversee the treatment of industrial waste water; support the blasting/mechanical surface preparation of components

StandardAero is a leading Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) company over a hundred years strong. The variety of services it offers not only meets customer needs but also allows its employees to continuously learn and grow.

I enjoy the exposure to a broad variety of challenges, which constantly hones and expands my technical, managerial and decision-making skills.

Some memorable projects include the development of a chemical processing tool which reduced the turn-around time by 85% and a precious metal recovery project that saved the company about $50K/yr.

The support I provide generally allows life to go on more smoothly for our staff, whether through resolving a production stoppage, sourcing or developing a better mechanism to accomplish a task, or even just hearing out their technical (and personal) concerns.

For women to have more options regarding schedules (part time/full time/home-based) to ease the strain of balancing family and work life. Supporting this could mean being more involved in women-in-engineering groups and initiatives for a more unified voice.

Through outreach and professional development activities, research, partnerships, thought leadership and online initiatives, we work with industry and academia to educate on the value of diversity for innovation, to inspire women to thrive and to celebrate the contributions of women in science and engineering.
