Taylor Oliver-McCallum - 20

Red Deer College
Wetaskiwin, AB


Plumbing was a natural career choice for me. I had no idea what I would be drawn to coming out of high school, but when my job got serious, I realized plumbing was going to be my career. My career goals are to become a Red Seal journeyman. I would like to open my own plumbing company as well.

My instructor from Red Deer College approached me after class and told me about a skills competition that was taking place in Edmonton. I was hesitant at first, but I knew it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity, so I decided to sign up.

Interesting Fact

I have always been drawn to nature and the mountains. One of my favorite things to do is camping and hiking.

Essential Skills

One of the Essential Skills I utilize the most is continuous learning. Every day that I’m working in my field there is always something new I can learn and grow from. I feel like this has helped me be successful as a plumber and will continue to help me improve.
