Gayleen Creelman
Program Director, Saskatchewan @EPRA
CITT Certified Logistics and Distribution Management Professional since 1996. Married with one daughter who is heading to university in the fall. I enjoy travelling and researching family history (and golfing when I can get the chance). My work experience centers around the movement of goods, whether that be from a pharmaceutical warehouse to pharmacies in Saskatchewan; to shipping potash by rail and vessel to international markets; to managing the movement of agricultural products by truck, rail, and vessel from producers (farmers) in Western Canada to users in Canada, US, and around the world; and , most recently, ensuring that materials in the electronics that we use in our everyday life are not sent to landfills or illegally exported from Canada, but are properly and safely recycled and returned to the manufacturing supply chain to make new items.
