What are you happiest doing when you’re not working?
Drawing in my sketchbook, doing yoga, exploring new places and learning new things. Visiting well-designed restaurants is also one of my favourite pastimes.
Where did you grow up?
Who or what inspired(s) you to pursue your profession?
My family always encouraged me to understand what I wanted, and expressed support for all of my choices. From a young age, I have been fascinated by the power of buildings and spaces to shape their time and influence people’s lifestyle, and I wanted to be able to make positive changes around me. My husband gives me more support and inspiration than I could ever wish for.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I can write simple programs in python.
What publications do you read regularly?
I like watching the YouTube channels 30X40 Design Workshop, VizAcademy UK, and Dezeen during breakfast.
What are some small things that make you happy?
Natural tea, candles, and essential oils.
What are some unique skills you bring to your job?
I was lucky enough to participate in very large projects from the beginning of my University education, so I’m not afraid of any project scale. Also BIM is my “native language” for design development.
What is on your bucket list?
Visit a lot of countries.
Open a perfectly designed café in Edmonton.
