Being active and traveling. Golf in the summer and curling in the winter. I have been to over 50 countries and always find it exciting to experience new cultures.

Born and raised in Edmonton, It’s been a great place to live and see Edmonton develop into what it is today. I can’t see myself leaving anytime soon.

Came from a very entrepreneurial family. When I took the CET program at NAIT I could see the potential of being a business owner. Coming to L7 has reaffirmed that many skills are transferable, and to always work and progress.

Always leave the room better than you found it.

Helping with the growth of the company. Whether it is meeting with new clients, improving systems within the firm or sharing my experience with 30 years of business.

What is on your bucket list?
