Partner, McCarthy Tétrault LLP
Sector: Private Sector
Magic Moment: There isn’t one moment. Where a project is successful it is a result of a team effort. My work with Bridgepoint Health is a highlight because the facility provides wonderful space for vulnerable people in our community.
Key Influence: My father was my major mentor who continually made me do things that scared the heck out of me. Driving a big motor boat at age 9 was a life changer. Changing my own spark plug on a motor bike I rode was also empowering.
Next Big Challenge As An Industry: Approval bodies need to create approval teams, not silos with inter-departmental jurisdictional issues.
Secret Talent: Baking sour cherry pies with a lattice top.
On Championing Others… I respect ideas not status.
One word that captures you: Determined and lazy! Two words though!
