Alex is one of our General Labourers. He is responsible for performing an assortment of tasks in order to assist with the completion of our landscape construction projects. He takes care of moving materials around our sites, digging holes and trenches for planting, gardening, and much more. Alex has a significant amount of industry experience and is a skilled worker.
Born in Calgary, and raised in a variety of towns in Alberta and British Columbia, Alex started his career at Canada Post. He got into landscaping in Kelowna in 2015 and was one of the first employees of a small company. He helped to grow and expand their team and services and his contributions led them to become one of the largest landscape companies in the area. In 2017 Alex moved back to Calgary and took on a position at a local landscaping company that was managed by our very own Chelsea Pasutto. He started on their team as a labourer and worked up to Crew Lead and then was promoted to Assistant Supervisor for their fleet of sanding trucks.
After taking a break from the workforce for personal reasons, Alex was eager to get back outdoors and into the landscaping action. When he learned Chelsea was working here at Jenron he couldn't wait to reach out and apply. Alex brings extensive knowledge in planting plants and his experience in the construction process to the Jenron team.
Alex shares his home with his senior cat named Elenor who is 16 years old. He enjoys gardening and refinishing furniture in his spare time. He’s also an Amateur Prospector Jack who loves going out to the mountains to pan for gold.
Chelsea is our General Manager. With over 20 years in both commercial and residential sectors, Chelsea has experience in project management, safety management, team building, professional development, strategic implementation, and company collaboration. She formulates our business strategy and oversees our entire team, mentoring them throughout their career at Jenron. Chelsea is a thoughtful leader and a confident decision maker.
Originally from Saskatchewan, she moved to Calgary in 2001 to continue her education. Chelsea graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Calgary in 2009. She also attended Haskayne School of Business for two years. She graduated with a Prairie-Horticulture Certificate in Landscaping from Olds College in 2011. Chelsea is also certified in Contractor Management, Leadership for Safety Excellence, Principles of Health & Safety Management and she’s an Alberta Certified Peer Health & Safety Auditor.
She moved to New Zealand for a year to do Project Management creating highways and sub developments before coming to Jenron.

She holds an excellent track record of creating strong working relationships with owners, contractors and suppliers, resulting in successful landscape experiences.
Outside of work Chelsea enjoys being outdoors and skiing, hiking or going camping. She can find peace and happiness on any trail in the forest with her min pin Shelby.
Erin is our Office Manager. She ensures our office is running smoothly while overseeing staff and taking care of our bookkeeping, payroll and supply management. She works closely with the rest of the management team to ensure the office and day to day operations are functioning effectively.
Erin is a born and raised Calgarian. She grew up with the mountains in her backyard and cannot imagine living anywhere else. Before joining the team here at Jenron Erin spent nearly a decade in the Oil and Gas industry. She earned her Library Information and Technology Diploma at Sait in 2007 and was already working part time at Encana. Upon graduation she was invited to take on a full time position in Records Management. Erin’s attention to detail and precision accuracy made her extremely skilled at her job and she soon moved into Regulatory Compliance. She made the decision to leave what was becoming a volatile industry and changed careers. Erin started with us in 2018 and 3 years later we don’t know what we would do without her.
She works closely with Steve and they bring sass and smiles to the office making everyone laugh with their witty banter. We all think of her as the “Office Mom” because we know she truly cares for each person on the team and is always making sure we are safe and organized. She is really good with numbers and has an uncanny ability to remember the tiniest details pertaining to our customers. Erin is also a wiz at math and enjoys drafting our landscaping quotes which requires reviewing property reports and doing complex calculations.
In her spare time Erin enjoys baking, spending time with her husband Ryan and their two boys Nixon and Lincoln, and tries to get out and enjoy the mountains as often as possible.
Hailee is our Administrative Assistant. She helps everyone at the office and the crews on site by keeping us all organized and working efficiently. Her attention to detail and stellar interpersonal skills allow her to be effective in her role. Hailee loves to showcase the variety in projects we get to take on through our Social Media channels. She is usually the one answering calls at the office helping our new and existing clients. She’s a people person so Hailee loves her job!
Before joining the Jenron team, Hailee spent over a decade managing two dog Behaviour & Education Centres where she was responsible for the care and training of 120+ dogs per day. She was a speaker three years in a row at the Association of Professional Dog Trainers conference and is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer. Hailee loves to teach and led an apprenticeship program for people who wanted to become dog trainers as a career. She is proud to have educated over 100 successful graduates.
She loves animals and was thrilled to meet Bella (our office Turtle) on her first day! She cares for Bella, taking her in out of the pond for her daily exercise, does her feedings, and even files her shell when needed. Ironically, Hailee is terrified of spiders so she relies on Erin to keep the office safe from any eight legged creepers who find their way inside. Hailee loves working with the team and the amazing clients we have at Jenron. She is eager to learn more about fish and lead our aquatic sales department one day.
Her favourite pastime is camping so you can typically find her in the forest when she’s not working or out with her dogs at one of the amazing parks in our city. Hailee shares her home with her boyfriend Cory, their dogs Turbo and Cheech, and their cat Sheldon.
Jill is our visionary. She creates the designs that our teams follow to build an outdoor oasis for each of our clients. She loves to work with people to make their yard special. Jill’s goal is to design something that makes the homeowner excited to spend time in their outdoor living space.
Jill has been working in the industry since 2002 when she graduated from Idaho State with a Bachelor of Arts. Initially she planned to work in park design focusing on large outdoor spaces. It turns out Jill loves working one-on-one with homeowners and being able to provide personalized service. This realization led her to Olds College where she graduated with a degree in Landscape Management & Design in 2005.
She joined the Jenron team in 2017 and works in collaboration with Steve to design and plan our construction projects. Jill is passionate about her role and is a surprisingly good planter! She doesn’t shy away from hands-on work and is happy to help out to ensure the finished product is exactly what she helped our client to envision.
Jill shares her home with her husband Doug, their two daughters Isla and Elouise, and their dog Poppy. She loves spending time at the soccer field and coaches her daughters team. Jill is also an avid gardener who enjoys planting and maintaining her garden all season long.
