Bio

Biography

My background consists of a Bachelor’s degree in Regional and Urban Development (Planning) with a minor in Economics from the University of Saskatchewan coupled with professional designations from the Canadian Institute of Planners and the Saskatchewan Professional Planners Institute. My work with the Government of Saskatchewan has given me a broad understanding of development at the local, regional, and provincial level. In addition, my Master of Business Administration (MBA) has provided a broad understanding of business to complement my existing leadership skills, required for the CIP board.

Currently, with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, the majority of my work involves regional transportation planning, federal funding, and grant funding for communities. Also, I have worked directly with First Nation communities to support First Nation applications for federal funding. This work supports infrastructure improvements to enable improved access into and out of communities which support food security, economic development opportunities, as well as, access to health care, education, and employment opportunities.

Through my work, I have been able to support the development of a sustainable provincial transportation network for Saskatchewan that integrates municipal, provincial, and national highway systems. My past and current experience leading and supporting stakeholder engagement reflect the perspective I can bring to the CIP board.

Expression of Interest

I am interested in raising the profile of planning both nationally and globally while providing leadership to the CIP. Through my work as part of the Great Places in Canada – National Jury committee, the PSB Accreditation Program Committee, and previously as part of the Saskatchewan PTIA, I recognize the importance of a strong planning profession. I want to work with members and PTIAs to continue finding ways to create value for members of the planning profession and society as a whole.
