Diana is a highly motivated mechanical engineer who joined our team over a decade ago. She leads the mechanical design on buildings ranging from small renovations to large institutions and helps manage the Edmonton mechanical engineering team.  Diana is recognized for her analytical mind, strong sense of ownership, and approachable leadership style. She has a keen interest in sustainable design, and she unites the interdisciplinary effort required to achieve high sustainability goals. With a love for projects that positively change the city she lives in, one of Diana’s favorite moments was walking into the Royal Alberta Museum when it first opened and seeing other people enjoying the space she helped design.

She also helps to inspire interest in consulting engineering by volunteering in elementary schools and at the University of Alberta. Because of her well-rounded approach to design and teamwork, Diana was recognized by the Consulting Engineers of Alberta with the 2019 Harold L. Morrison Rising Young Professional award.

What’s your favourite DIALOG project?
The Royal Alberta Museum has been the largest project I’ve worked on to date. There was such a large range of space types and requirements for each area. It was like working on multiple buildings in one!

What do you do to treat yourself?
My husband and I love travelling the world and seeing new places and cultures.

Where’s your happy place?
In the mountains, any time of the year. I love being outdoors, whether it’s hiking, snowboarding or sitting by the fire and reading a book. I always look around in awe.

What I love most about DIALOG is the people I work with. It's amazing to be surrounded by a large group who genuinely want to make a difference and are passionate about what they do. I also love the variety of projects I get to be involved with.
