With many years working in an integrated design studio, Jennifer develops lasting collaborative relationships with colleagues, consultants, contractors, and owners. Her combined understanding of lean project delivery and management complements her building technology and design expertise to facilitate the delivery of exceptional projects.

What’s your favourite DIALOG initiative?
The Community Wellbeing Framework! It is a robust and practical tool to align the purpose and direction of ANY project with aspirational values that equate to real and sustainable wellbeing for all humans.

Where do you find inspiration?
Traveling abroad! The richness of different cultures and architecture infuses my creative mind with inspiration that informs the way I design, lead projects, cook, even commute (thank you, Copenhagen)!

What’s one ‘pro tip’ you live by?
“Work smarter, not harder” – It’s a commitment to innovation!
