MEET THE TEAM
Deep roots grow a legacy.
Owner/Operator, ISA Certified Arborist
Johnny graduated from the Georgian College Pre-Service Firefighting Program in 2010 and spent the next 8 years looking for the right opportunity. Now an ISA certified arborist, he has impressed his previous employers, teachers, and clients with his work ethic and honesty.
Johnny has always been the kind of guy who spent most of his free time thinking about work, and that's why he is so excited about Northshore. It's a chance for him to build something of his own. For him, that means treating this as an extension of his family - allowing him to provide for them but also making sure his teammates can provide for theirs as well; caring for his clients like family, not just customers; and modelling the
character he hopes to see in his children by conducting business with integrity. Because if you're going to spend half your life at your job, why waste it doing "just a job"? Johnny and the rest of the Northshore team are fully committed to intentionally investing their time wisely, and because we want to make the most of our time, you can trust that we won't waste yours.
Jessica graduated from Georgian College's Business Accounting program in 2011. Now with a young family and a new business, she is excited to team up with her husband to make something of their own. Jess brings some pretty big skills to the table, including writing most of Johnny's emails for him and leaving awkward voicemails for clients because answering machines make her nervous.
Other than managing all things administrative, Jess occasionally updates the this site and does her best not to loathe it. So thanks to all of you who have complimented the website! It truly does make her day knowing her frustrated efforts were not all for nothing!
Martin is currently in the arborist apprenticeship program working his way to becoming a certified arborist. He always loves to keep busy doing jobs that allow him to be active, so arboriculture is something he's well-suited for! When he's not climbing a tree for fun, he enjoys hiking, camping, paddle boarding, trying new foods, and spending time with his wife, family, and friends. Martin is excited to join the crew here at Northshore and we're happy to have him!
Inake is basically Jess' life saver - rescuing her from beneath the smoke and rubble of homeschooling with 6 children and running all things "desk related", she has become an invaluable part of the team (thanks Martin!).
When she's not answering phone calls Inake enjoys baking, being outdoors, camping, paddle boarding, trying to keep plants alive, and spending time with her family and friends.
Mason went to school at George Brown College and Georgian College to pursue an education in multiple fields. After spending time at these schools, he realized that he could not see a future in either of the programs that he was in. He joined the Northshore team in 2021, and soon came to the conclusion that this job was not like anything else he had tried, but he couldn't see himself doing anything but this! Mason went on to graduate from the Humber Urban Arboriculture Program. Despite working long hours out in the sun, he enjoys spending his off time outdoors, going ice fishing, watching Star Wars , spending time with his girlfriend and friends, and most importantly going to Walmart.
Steven is a another born-and-raised Barrie boy who, after attending the Toronto Film School for Film Production and working a while, decided to take a dramatic turn towards the outdoors to attend Humber College's Arborist Pre-Apprenticeship program in 2020. Since then, he's worked in Vancouver and Toronto and is excited to be back in his home town. Other than climbing trees, Steven enjoys camping, hiking, fishing, playing guitar, and photography.
