Four questions with…

What is your favourite pastime?
My favourite pastime is showing my miniature poodle, Daisy. She’s done really well in the ring, and is now both a Canadian and American champion.

Where is your happy place?
My happy place used to be the softball field, (playing both slo and fastpitch) but with my boys getting older, this has transitioned to being on the sidelines, watching them play baseball. It’s so great that they have grown to love the sport as much as I do and there is no place I’d rather be than behind the fence cheering them on!

Binge-watching a show / series, or read a good book?
While I also love a couch date with my husband, definitely a good book!

What’s your favourite Thinkspace project (to date)?
It’s tough to choose just one so I will go with three! I like how the new repeat design elementary schools (Maddaugh, Edgewood and Douglas) are bright, light-filled schools with flexibility built into the design to accommodate various learning and teaching methods. I wish I could have attended a school like that when I was a kid!
