Statement:

"I have spent my career trying to level the playing field so anyone can succeed in our industry. Driven by my personal experiences and my passion for fairness and equity, I trailblazed some of the first D&I and social value action plans that led the way for our industry to change and do better. I have always been amazed how people are willing to step up as role models, allies, or mentors to pave the way for others, and this is what keeps me motivated. Teams with greater diversity are a pleasure to be a part of, from better decision making, to greater innovation - diversity in the built environment just makes sense."
