The owner and principal consultant of EnTec Environmental Consulting Ltd., Dawn Gough, holds a Graduate Degree in Technology Management, a Bachelor of Technology Degree, and a Diploma in Environmental Technology (EnTec is short for "Environmental Technology").

Her career in the environmental industry thus far has led her to work on many of Newfoundland and Labrador’s megaprojects, including the Voisey's Bay Underground Expansion Project, the Long Harbour Nickel Processing Plant Project, the Bull Arm Fabrication Site, and the Churchill Falls Underground Hydroelectric Generating Station where she focused on the development of sound environmental management plans and policies.
