WHAT I'M UP TO

THE CONFERENCE TRAIL
I attended the Health Care Design conference in Orlando, Florida, in 2013 as part of the Providence Health Care delegation while working on the concept design for the St. Paul’s Hospital Ambulatory Care building. 

At the Environments for Aging conference in 2010, I co-presented with Barbara Miszkiel on the types of P3 care facility project delivery modes that we’ve experienced in BC and Ontario.

At the architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC) Annual Conference in 2009, I co-presented with Jay Hiscox of Stantec and Doug Stickney from the Good Samaritan Society on Victoria Heights, a mixed-use assisted living facility that we worked on in New Westminster, BC. 

WHERE I’M PUBLISHED
The Design For Aging Review, a collection of the year’s most significant eldercare projects, showcased my Victoria Heights project in New Westminster, BC, in 2009.

WHAT I’M READING
Lately there have been some very interesting documentaries focusing on aging and Alzheimer’s Disease. Notable examples are “I’ll Be Me” (documentary about Glen Campbell’s journey with Alzheimer’s) and “Alive Inside: A story of music & memory” (documentary about Dan Cohen, founder of Music and Memory).

IN MY COMMUNITY
I’m a past-president and past-executive board member for the AROKIS Society.

This year, at our annual Stantec in the Community Day, I volunteered with the Vancouver Food Bank. Our team sorted literal tons of donated food so that it could be packaged and distributed.
