y name is Sandra Milne and I’m the new Regional Innovation Network (RIN) Coordinator for Southeastern Alberta. I was hired about a month ago to replace Elizabeth Blair who after a long 17-month wait, was finally reunited with her family in Frisco, TX. Congratulations Elizabeth everyone at CFEC wishes you an abundance of success and happiness. What is a RIN Coordinator you ask? Well, a RIN Coordinator is someone who works with technology and knowledge-based Entrepreneurial and Venture Development to discover and address GAPs in the systems within which they are trying to achieve success. So basically, I 10


You may be asking yourself, what qualifications does a person require to become the RIN Coordinator? My background is fairly diverse. I grew up in small-town British Columbia where I graduated from Prince Rupert Senior Secondary School in the mid-‘80s. Fun fact, Prince Rupert receives, on average, 239 days of rain/year making it one of the rainiest cities in Canada; quite a contrast to Medicine Hat’s ‘sunniest city’ distinction. I attended College and graduated with a diploma in Construction Engineering Technology, quickly decided this wasn’t the career for me and joined the Canadian Military. Early in my military career, it was revealed that I had a high aptitude for learning language and my Commanding Officer posted me to the Canadian Forces Language School (CFLS) in Ottawa to learn to read, write and speak Russian.

During my 10-year career as a soldier, I spent most of my time in Ottawa (Leitrim, CFLS, NDHQ and CSE). If you were to ask me about my most memorable experience during those 10-years, my answer would be the 18 months I spent at the North Pole (Alert, NWT located ~400km south of the North Pole). After retiring from the military, I moved to Calgary and worked in Investor Relations, in a law firm as a Paralegal and then as a Stayat-Home Mom. In 2005 I moved to Dawson Creek, BC and began working for an oilfield service company; I enjoyed running the business so much that in 2008 I purchased the company. In 2009 I graduated University with an MBA and in 2010 I was listed 24 on Profit Magazine’s ‘Top 100 Female Entrepreneurs in Canada’ and my company was included in the ‘Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies in Canada’ with a 5 year gross revenue increase of 250%. The accolades kept coming and in 2011 I was named a ‘Rising Star in the Oil and Gas Industry’ and I was nominated for the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

completely life altering collision happened, I met the love of my life! In 2018 my children were all living independently, my earn-out from the sale of my business was complete and my love was offered an excellent position with the City of Medicine Hat. As Neale Donald Walsch wrote, “When Everything Changes, Change Everything”; so we moved to Medicine Hat. It’s been a winding road with many jubilations and challenges along the way and I’m so excited to be here and in the role of RIN Coordinator. If you have an innovative or technology driven idea or business, come on down to Community Futures on 4th Street and have a coffee with me. I look forward to listening, encouraging and connecting you with the resources that will move you, your idea and/or your business forward!

For more information about our programs and how we can connect you with helpful resources for your business, please call Community Futures at 403-528-2824.

I spent the next 8 or so years expanding and running the business, raising my children and gaining experience and insight into the joys and trials of being an entrepreneur. In 2016 I sold the business and in early 2017 a

Circle green is a family owned and operated lawn care business serving Medicine Hat and Redcliff. As the owner I enjoy working in different back yards and getting to know my customers. We offer help year round as the seasons change from one to the other. My team is always ready to help you reach the goal you have for your yard because there is always a solution to making a yard feel more like home. Circle Green has the right equipment for getting a job done efficiently and safely around your yard. We run relatively new trucks and trailers that are clean, and all yard equipment is kept up to date according to our safety standards. When working in anyone’s yard we try to give as little disturbance as possible and still make a difference each time. Circle Green operates legally. And we always have a valid business license on file.

In the spring time, Circle Green has the answer to a full yard tune up by offering power raking, lawn aeration, full yard cleanups and also sprinkler start-ups. We make sure that all sprinklers are set right and that maintenance is kept up to avoid dry spots during the summer. We want your yards looking good and should a customer ever have any questions we are simply a phone call away. During the summer we offer weekly mowing and trimming as well as sprinkler installations and sod installations. Circle Green has a mowing schedule to make mowing consistent and regular, and also so the customer can expect us at the same time each week.
