MEET THE TEAM
Owner / President
Danielle, by pure definition, is Prairie Environmental Services. She started this company 13 years ago with only one spray truck and one handgun unit and has since grown the company by nearly 10 times. Danielle is the brains behind the operations here, and with her extensive expertise & industry knowledge, the company continues to flourish.
Danielle’s passion for the environment and vegetation management doesn’t go unnoticed. She takes pride in the various programs she has developed for the surrounding communities and been asked to speak at numerous forums in the industry.
As the captain of the ship, she ensures all staff are properly trained and highly educated to guarantee the best experience for our customers.
The staff at Prairie Environmental Services is fortunate to have Danielle as their mentor, teacher & friend.
Manager of Operations
Tannas brings over 30 years of tree health, turf management, operational and leadership experience. She runs a tight ship with humor and fun and has brought employee retention, continued education and moral to the forefront of our operations.
Tannas specializes in problem solving while juggling staff ability, superior customer service standards, company time-lines and budgets. If she's not working alongside our staff in her favourite place, the outdoors: you will find her revamping our employee manuals, refreshing our job descriptions or emailing our marching orders for weekend work. In short she keeps us moving positively forward with every thought she has in her day-to-day operations.
You will find Tannas overseeing our managers, which sometimes looks similar to a lion tamer at work. She can be found on our large jobs and even down and dirty in the day to day grind. When she sees work that needs done, she is the first to jump on board and make sure it is getting completed.
Since opening our doors, Prairie Environmental Services Ltd. has developed and grown, mostly because of our exceptional team. We’re proud of our staff’s abilities to contribute their unique experience and skills to our continuing success.
Owner / Director of Operations
Greg is the Director of Operations and Co-owner of the company. He is a journeyman mechanic with many years of experience and possesses various pesticide applicators licenses. Greg keeps the fleet in tip-top condition and has endless patience when repairing damage to equipment that can, on occasion, occur when the busy world collides with his fleet.
He performs those finesse spraying jobs that no one else can navigate and does so with a can-do attitude and a smile on his face. He is never above getting down and dirty and working alongside the team. He is gifted when it comes to producing solutions to hurdles and creating efficiencies. Greg is a deep thinker and his mind is always in motion.
Greg makes us laugh every single day and is the glue that makes the company run like a well-oiled machine.
Supervisor of Turf Programs
Christopher Tompkins is the Supervisor of Turf Programs here at Praire Environmental Services Ltd. He started as a young wipper snapper shovelling snow in the winter time and, lucky for us, never left!!!
Chris takes on new challenges with a “can do” attitude. He has rapidly learned all things turf and created efficiencies and expert level of turf health programs for the company. Chris makes sure that clients are satisfied by ensuring quality outcomes.
He is as smart as a whip and one of the most interesting individuals that you will ever converse with. He leads teams with high production while still maintaining an enjoyable workplace! Chris is an asset to our crew! Please be sure to say hi to him if you see him out in the field.
