Partner, Goodmans LLP
Sector: Private Sector
Magic Moment: Working with the Waterfront Toronto team in connection to the redevelopment of the West Don Lands, and the Pan Am Village. I worked with an amazing team, and it was a wonderful opportunity to work with several other women in the real-estate industry, City Planners, the staff at IO, and the province. Being able to see the project take off and grow was a great moment.
Key Influence: Allan Leibel – Goodmans LLP – Involved me in challenging files regarding the Waterfront, and downtown and allowed me to be independent while providing the right amount of supervision.
Meg Davis (WLI Champion 2014) – Waterfront Toronto – I worked with wonderful people on the Don Lands project. I saw the high level of intelligence, thought, and strategy that went into the entire process
Next Big Challenge As An Industry: The need for improved transit. We are in a situation where intensification is prominent, and more people are living and working in the downtown core. We must improve how these people get to work and enable them to live nearby their workplace. Another challenge is to build a city with a high quality of life for its residents, where all people’s needs are addressed and they can enjoy the city.
Secret Talent: I used to play competitively on the Canadian National Lacrosse Team.
On Championing Others… At Goodmans, I am involved in the Student and Young Lawyer program. I really enjoy working with them, and do my best to give them inspiring files. I am fortunate to be in a situation where I can work closely with students, and involve them to a large degree on files that I am working on.
One word that captures you: Inspired
