Mickey Phillips

Operations and Maintenance Supervisor

Hadi, my name is Mickey Phillips, I moved here from Nadzko in the Quesnel area almost 30 years ago where I met my wife, Peggy Johnny and started working for Saik’uz First Nation in 1989 as a laborer and since moving to Vanderhoof, I have been initial attack for the forestry, then for Canfor, after that I was in Silva culture until I became a laborer here in the community and now the Maintenance Supervisor.  I love working for the Nation, they treat me like family and I hope to continue to work for the band for many more years to come.
