I was born and raised in Saskatoon. I attended the University of Saskatchewan and obtained a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Arts from the Department of Archaeology, College of Arts and Science. After working as a Professional Archaeologist for several years, I was ready for a chance of scenery. I was provided with a hands-on opportunity to learn about planning at Crosby Hanna & Associates and fell in love with the discipline. I worked with Crosby Hanna for approximately 9 years before taking an opportunity to work with the provincial government with the Ministry of Government Relations, Community Planning Branch. Following my tenure at Community Planning, I took a step back to re-balance my home/work life and now operate a sole proprietorship as a planning consultant. I joined SPPI Council because I’ve always been interested in pursuing volunteer opportunities. I felt like it was a good way to get to know other professionals in the discipline. I will be rolling into the President’s position in the fall of 2022. Two of the goals I have is to continue with the promotion of SPPI province-wide, and to continue to pursue additional ethics workshops for our members. My favourite place to be on any given day is on the lake fishing, floating, swimming, or ice-fishing with my family at Weyakwin Lake.
