Brief Biography

A public servant for over 20 years, I am currently the Manager of Land Use Planning Services at Parks Canada. I am passionate about the role that land use planning can play at the federal level as well as in protected area conservation. I have previously held positions in several federal departments as well as at the municipal level and community development non-profit sector in Edmonton.

I also currently serve as a member of the CIP Honours Jury and was a Director of the Planning Students Trust Fund. I have generally focused my volunteer activities within the Ottawa River watershed, near my residences of Papineau- Cameron (Ontairo) and Gatineau (Quebec).

A graduate of the University of Guelph’s Rural Planning and Development program, I am a full member of the Canadian Institute of Planners, the Ontario Professional Planners Institute, an urbaniste with L'Ordre des urbanistes du Québec, and an affiliate member of the Royal Town Planning Institute in the UK.
