“I met a BC Ferries Captain when I was 14 who gave me a bridge tour and set me on my own personal course. Since that time, I’ve grown and learned so much at BC Ferries,” says Captain Erika Brockhausen, Master at Tsawwassen. “I’ve enjoyed gaining the skills to successfully lead a team and positively influence others. You are not limited working at BC Ferries because there is so much opportunity.”
