Everything we do as designers, must start with sustainable choices. We are building a future for the people and the planet.

As an advocate for sustainability across the firm, my expertise provides considerable benefit from planning through to construction. Collaborating with stakeholders on projects is one of my strengths and something I really enjoy, and I excel at choreographing several moving pieces. I have worked on many high profile projects across Alberta such as Red Crow Community College, Kainai Peacemaking Centre, South Health Campus and the Edmonton Federal Building. Through my strong work ethic and superior project management practices, I am ideally suited to manage large and complex projects.


My Sectors: Arts & Culture; Education & Research; Government Administration; Healthcare & Industrial.

My Services: Architecture; Master Planning & Urban Design; Planning, Design & Conformance.

Why do you enjoy working at Kasian?

“I’ve been with Kasian for over 16 years, progressing from an intern architect to Principal. What I appreciate about my journey here is the opportunity for personal and professional growth. Embracing diversity within my teams and colleagues has been a source of learning and strength.”


What’s your favourite part of the design process?

“I thrive on client engagement and visioning sessions where we learn about stakeholders, who they are and their needs. The projects we do aren’t for us but for them, and I love discovering what their projects can become.”
