Amy started Safety Buzz in 2004 with the idea of having people see safety from a new perspective. Her idea was to bring fun to safety and the classroom. She has certainly accomplished this!

Amy now resides in Dunmore with her family. Along with her husband Sheldon, Amy owns and trains at the Safety Buzz Campus in Dunmore. Amy is passionate about the company safety and instructing. So much actually that she decided to become a certified leadership speaker, trainer & coach through the John Maxwell Team.

Amy is extremely proud of the company achievements which include a lot of community involvement and awards such as the 2020 MHD Chamber Award of Excellence and Business Ethics, 2019 Alberta Awards of Distinction nominee, 2018 Chamber Award for Small Business of the Year and Marketing and Action Coach CEO of the year.

Sheldon is the Buzz glue! This is two fold. He makes sure our team sticks together and he also is a handyman around the
Campus. You can find Sheldon cracking jokes with the team, in his office analysing numbers thinking of ways to improve on systems and in the classroom.

Sheldon came on as a partner of Safety Buzz in 2011. He took the place of COO and soon overcame his fears and began instructing. Sit in one of Sheldon's courses & you would never know he was reluctant to teach as he is a natural instructor! Sheldon is humerous, clear and consise and takes the time to ensure everyone understands the safety material. Sheldon's past work as a manager & operator at CCS/Tervita as well as other oil & gas/construction related work positions set Sheldon up well with tons of practical experience to compliment his courses.

Sheldon has lived in Medicine Hat since 2010. Sheldon loves the outdoors and spends tons of time with his family enjoying sports and recreational activities. Sheldon is a real family man, spending time with his wife and 3 boys and his extended family as much as possible. On his offtime Sheldon is often found tinkering in the garage, backyard or improving things at the Campus.

What would we do without Sheldon??
