She says the job will be a steep learning curve, but that she feels she will be able to significantly contribute to a community in which she strongly believes.
She adds that smaller airports, like the one in Fort St. John, have to work to be integrated with a community, so that it is viewed as one of the most important pillars of infrastructure in the city.
There are many skills that she says she brings to the position and hopes she can incorporate into the job.

Fred Jarvis, mayor of the District of Taylor and the president of the North Peace Airport Society says he feels Green’s previous experience will be a benefit to the airport.
