After graduating high school Megan moved to Ontario where she attended Redeemer University College and graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree with her honors in biology and minor in chemistry. Megan had plans of continuing her education to become a Veterinarian, but that changed when she moved back to Alberta and started working at Vantage in 2014. She installed doors & windows, kitchens and worked on the finishing crew for two years, which she enjoyed, before a shoulder injury took her out of the field in summer of 2016. Now Megan is working in the office and excelling in both administration and payroll. Megan lives in Vegreville and spends much of her spare time with her horses, and doing what she loves, which involves anything to do with animals!

His customer service skills and knowledge in the estimating department have already proven to be an asset to the company and our customers. James moved to Alberta in 2009 from Vancouver and later completed the SCMP Purchasing course at the University of Alberta. He has work experience in the plumbing industry as an apprentice and was a purchaser for both a manufacturer in the oil & gas industry, and a general contractor working in the high-rise condo construction market. Most recently, he was the operations manager for an Edmonton contractor for which he handled estimating, sales, and material take-offs. James is looking forward to working towards his MBA (Masters of Business Administration) as he continues his new career at Vantage. He and his wife, Emilie and their children Oliver and Agnes recently moved to Vegreville from Sherwood Park. They enjoy spending time on the farm together and playing music.

Since the grand opening on July 18, 2010 (just over a year after breaking ground) the park has proven to be a great attraction for families to spend time at all year round.  Lion’s Club member John Sawiak was beaming while telling us that he seen kids with toboggans at the park in the winter months of the last few years.

Vantage Builders is proud to have donated $17,000 in Phase I towards making this project a huge success, and a picnic table and bench in Phase II, and will continue to take pride in helping to make such a great outdoor resource for all of the children in our community and all future generations to come.
