I’m an environmental researcher and educator who’s intrigued by the transactional relationship between people and place. I’ve studied this dynamic over the past 12 years resulting in my award-winning dissertation Designing for the future: A post-occupancy evaluation of the Peter Jones Learning Centre. An international speaker on campus ecology, I enjoy facilitating workshops on creating spaces for creativity and innovation.
My work is currently featured in The Translational Design of Universities: An Evidence-Based Approach (2019) examining the present and future of campus planning and design and in AMEE’s MedEdPublish exploring The Ecology of Care: A Review of the Literature in Clinical Learning Environments (2019).
You can also find me gallivanting across the pages of Stephen Hui’s bestselling book 105 Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia (2018), paddling outrigger canoes, and preparing for Sedna Epic’s Expedition 2020 Team headed to the Arctic Circle where we’ll be working with women and youth to further develop our knowledge and practice in tackling societal and climate challenges.
I believe in the creative life and better understanding the connections we have to each other and our surrounding milieu. I believe in giving a damn and high-fives that make my palm tingle. And I believe that a hearty laugh is priceless. Connect with me.
