What’s your favourite DIALOG project?
How to name just one?!? I’m inspired by how our projects impact a broad range of people’s lives. Projects that have impacted my own life are the engineering buildings at the University of Alberta (ECERF/ETLC/CMEB/ICE) where I completed my MEng, Robbins Pavilion at Royal Alexandra Hospital where I delivered my two children, the Stollery Children’s Hospital Emergency Department where my family has made a few visits, and retail centres such as Emerald Hills or Currents of Windermere where day to day necessities are available.
What’s one skill (outside of work) that you’d like to learn?
I would like to learn to knit. I think that it is an art that should not be lost.
How do you spend your weekends?
Majority of the time outdoors. I want my children to grow up exploring, getting dirty, taking risks and spending time outdoors. Playing with sticks, making mud pies, trying to climb trees or jump in puddles enforces those things.
