Leslie has successfully delivered civil infrastructure projects all across the north, in a wide range of disciplines including aviation, bulk fuel, municipal, and transportation. Recently, she made the move from Yellowknife to Ottawa, and she’s focused more of her energy on the aviation industry. Now, she’s worked on aviation projects from Iqaluit, Nunavut, to Bridgetown, Barbados, and from Anchorage, Alaska, to Gander, Newfoundland.
During her work on the Iqaluit International Airport Improvement project—Nunavut’s first P3 project and North America’s first airport P3 project—Leslie was one of the main civil designers. Her work included everything from runway and taxiway design to landside road development and bringing underground services to the new air terminal and combined services buildings.
As part of Stantec’s Diversity and Inclusion Council in Canada, Leslie aims to positively change the culture within her spheres of influence, ensuring a welcoming place for all people, a place where we celebrate our differences and leverage those differing points of views into first-class teams and top-notch services. To Leslie, D&I is all about teamwork and making sure that we really are better together.
Bilingual in French and English, Leslie brings a vibrant and optimistic energy to every project she works on. Her passion for aviation infrastructure design is what motivates her to keep learning and reaching new heights.
