What does a day in the life at Chard look like?
Every day is different, which is why I love it so much. I get to work on marketing for our corporate brand, residential projects – both condo and rental, as well as our commercial projects.

The amazing team! Everyone is so collaborative and works well together and we have a lot of fun along the way. I am constantly inspired by how committed the team is to producing innovative, quality product and creating an impact on the communities we build in throughout the housing continuum.
Can you share a career highlight or accomplishment you’re proud of?
Many of the projects I have worked on at Chard have been selected as finalists for different industry awards which is an accomplishment I am incredibly proud of, and we were recently selected as the winner of the best project website Georgie Award for our project NEST in Victoria!
How are you challenged in your role?
Finding ways to navigate the ever-changing market conditions – combined with the variety of different project types I get to work – definitely keeps me on my toes!
When you’re not working, what can we find you doing?
In the summer months you can find me cycling up one of the local mountains or walking my pup Rocky at Pacific Spirit Park. In the winter months, I like to spend my weekends in Whistler skiing or exploring the backcountry.

I qualified for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in 2019 racing the Whistler Gran Fondo
