Driven by an interest in how our environment impacts quality of life, Jennifer looks forward to fostering more sustainable, healthy communities through her work with M’akola Development Services. She holds a master’s degree in planning from Dalhousie University and a bachelor’s degree in Geography from the University of Victoria. During her studies, she explored how municipalities can successfully integrate alternative housing types including tiny homes.
Jennifer has had the privilege of working with a remote First Nations community in Northern Quebec to develop a comprehensive community plan, and of coordinating a community-based light rail transit initiative across Nova Scotia. She has also worked in the field of community development with BC Housing, project coordination with the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness, and communications with the Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Ghana.
