About the Author

Vickie Jensen

Vickie Jensen has built her writing career around the importance of documenting and validating work. As editor of Westcoast Mariner magazine she travelled on coastal tugs, charter yachts, dredges, ferries and water taxis for nearly four years, interviewing skippers, crews and owners about maritime work. She is the author of Saltwater Women at Work and Working nese Waters, and coauthor of the children's book Build Your Own Underwater Robot and Other Wet Projects. Her interest in writing about work extends to dry land, as well. Vickie spent several months with a Nisgda totem pole carving crew, a collaboration that resulted in Totem Pole Carving. Bringing a Log to Life and the children's book Carving a Totem Pole. For three decades, she and her husband Jay Powell have worked with First Nations elders to produce more than thirty schoolbooks, documenting a variety of Native languages spoken on the Northwest Coast. She is the author of nineteen publications including the textbook Underwater Robotics: Science, Design & Fabrication (MATE, 2010). She lives in Vancouver, BC.
