What are your hopes for the future of the planning profession?

I hope planners will continue to work with our partners in related professions to ensure safe, healthy communities for residents, create economic opportunities for business, and protect natural resources for future generations.
What are a few of your favourite places?

Calgary, Edmonton, the Rockies, Vancouver and Vancouver Island all hold a special place in my heart from road trips as a child with my parents and brothers. As an adult, I have added Waskesiu, New York, Costa Rica, Portugal, the Azores, the Scottish Highlands, and Giant’s Causeway to my list of special places.
Which person has most inspired your work in planning?

I have had the good fortune of being inspired by many amazing mentors and colleagues throughout my career. The person that most inspires my professional planning work is my nephew, Sam. My goal is to take everything I have learned and continue to learn to help build better communities for my nephew and all future generations.

Anything else we should know about you?

I love gardening. My specialties are tomatoes, peppers, and herbs. I also love tending to the numerous plants I keep in my house and office, and I am always on the look-out for unique additions to my collection.
