Meet Nicole Mychasiuk
Title: Arborist – Outside Sales
Team Member Since: 2006-2011 and rejoined in sales in 2021
Q: Describe your career path. How did you get into what you do now?
A: I spent several years working with ArborCare in 2006. I started out as a pesticide applicator, getting certified right away. The following year, I asked to be put on a tree crew as I was eager to learn. The next couple of years I spent working with some ArborCare legends. I worked very hard to earn their respect and soaked up everything they would teach me. Quickly, I discovered I loved to climb trees and even competed in the international tree climbing competition. I operated a 65’ aerial truck, operated the crane truck, and helped out in the winter driving snowplows. I spent one year on the sales side, doing the estimates before I ended my career with ArborCare around 2010/2011 before returning this year.
Q: Explain your position. Describe your role with the company.
A: I am an arborist and my role is outside sales. My main role with the company is to do a full assessment of the client’s property — mainly residential and some commercial properties and provide them with a quote for our tree services and landscaping services. My territory is Calgary and the surrounding area.
