Bradley Peter, Executive Director

Bradley is the Executive Director of the Alberta Lake Management Society. Bradley completed a B.Sc. in Ecology in 2010 at the University of Alberta with a special interest in freshwater biology. Bradley has spent 12 years working on lakes and community based monitoring programs with a goal of improving our understanding and the management of lakes, reservoirs, and their watersheds. In his “spare” time Bradley loves to go bowling with friends.

Brittany Onysyk, Program Manager

Growing up in a rural setting in Alberta, Brittany developed a great adoration of the environment. She has fond childhood memories camping around the province, and spent many summer days at lakes in the greater Edmonton region (especially Miquelon!). Having a deep appreciation for the environment and a desire to conserve it, Brittany graduated from the University of Alberta in 2018 with a B.Sc. in Environmental & Conservation Sciences, majoring in Land Reclamation. Brittany has held various field-based positions throughout the province, and is looking forward to expanding her knowledge on lake ecosystems as the Program Manager at ALMS. When she’s not out on the lake, you’ll find her out exploring with her dogs!

Kurstyn Perrin, Program Coordinator

Kurstyn’s love for lakes began as a child, by spending many summers at her family cabin at Pigeon Lake and by camping a lot around Alberta. She graduated from the University of Alberta in 2015 with a B.Sc. in Environmental and Conservation Sciences, with a major in Conservation Biology. In winter 2022, she joined ALMS to support the winter programs and then became a LakeWatch Technician in the summer, and learned lots about freshwater and invasive species monitoring. You will find her in the new role as the Indigenous Community Based Monitoring (ICBM) Program Coordinator, leading our new water quality monitoring program working with Indigenous communities residing in the oil sands regions of Alberta. She is looking forward to continuing her work in aquatic ecosystem management and connecting with new communities across Alberta.

Kirsten Letendre, Satellite Technician

Kirsten’s passion for lakes started as a young girl spending her winters on McLeod Lake, ice fishing, and her summers on Pigeon Lake, camping, fishing and doing water sports. Her childhood passions continued into adulthood, and you can typically find Kirsten outside, near some body of water. She graduated from Grant MacEwan University in 2022 with a B.Sc., majoring in Biological Sciences. She has spent time working in a biology lab, working with orphaned and injured wildlife, and working on a fish monitoring study, looking at the health of fish in lakes across Alberta. Joining ALMS in fall 2022, Kirsten has supported winter & summer LakeKeepers programs, has explored the province while collecting data as a LakeWatch technician, and is now excited to move into the role of Satellite Technician this summer.

Jordyn Lajeunesse, LakeWatch Technician

Jordyn’s passion for the outdoors developed while growing up in Saskatchewan, spending most of her time at the lakes. She was immersed in numerous activities, including camping, fishing, and other water recreational activities. She continues pursuing outdoor activities like backcountry camping, hiking, and exploring Alberta’s vast nature. She graduated from MacEwan University in 2023 with a B.Sc. majoring in Biology, and worked as a Satellite Technician for ALMS in the 2023 field season. She is excited to be back as a LakeWatch Technician this year and to spend time outside sampling and exploring more of Alberta’s beautiful lakes.

Katherine Cundict, LakeWatch Technician

Katherine’s love for the outdoors began by spending time on Pigeon Lake with her family. She has recently graduated from the University of Alberta with a B.Sc. in Biology specializing in Integrative Physiology. In her free time, she enjoys playing ringette, hiking, cross stitching, and baking. This summer, she is looking forward to starting her first season as a LakeWatch technician and getting outside!

Kailyn Gibbons, Recreational Water Technician

Kailyn’s love of water and lakes developed through years of swimming and camping at Alberta lakes. She continues to enjoy lakes while paddle boarding and exploring new areas to visit. When she’s not working, she can be found playing soccer, volleyball, and biking around her neighborhood! Kailyn recently finished her B.Sc. at the University of Alberta with a major in Chemistry and a minor in Biological Sciences. She was always passionate about science and doing hands-on activities, which has led her to exploring field and lab work in environmental sciences. She found water quality to be especially interesting through various courses and summer jobs and is very excited to be a part of the ALMS team. Kailyn is looking forward to spending the summer outside as a Recreational Water Technician and supporting healthy lake recreational use!

Blaire Oosterhuis, Recreational Water Technician

Born and raised in Alberta, Blaire has spent most of her years seeking outdoor adventures and opportunities. Her love for water stemmed from an early age, often enjoying activities such as boating, fishing, hiking, and camping at numerous lakes throughout the province. Having graduated from the University of Alberta this year with a B.Sc. in Conservation Biology, she is eager to enter a field she’s passionate about and expand her knowledge of aquatic science. In her role as a Recreational Water Technician, Blaire is looking forward to engaging with beach-goers, operators, and volunteers to recognize the importance of maintaining and monitoring freshwater ecosystems. She aims to help promote recreational water use that is safe, healthy, and fun!
