“It’s incredibly exciting to be in a role with this diversity of work, alongside such a high caliber of driven, motivated people.”

Elena Bergougnou

Project Lead

I joined Stroud’s Calgary office in 2013 after graduating from Queen’s with B.S in Chemical Engineering. I was initially drawn to Stroud because I wanted exposure to different industries and the opportunity to constantly work on new, challenging problems, and in both regards I have not been disappointed. My projects have spanned from increasing underground mine productivity in Europe, to decreasing capital costs for refineries in the Southern states, to making more cake just 45 minutes from my apartment. On my recent projects, I have led a team of Stroud associates and enjoyed the opportunity to coach and develop our new hires on their first projects. I spend most of my time outside of work (and some of my time during) thinking about food. I’m an avid baker and I love trying new restaurants wherever I go!
