Gail has a strong background in urban design and landscape architecture with a focus on community building. This combination has allowed her to create integrated and balanced built form and open space environments. She strives to create attractive high-quality public realm spaces that foster socialization, inclusivity, cultural diversity, and wellbeing.

In each of Gail's designs, the role of the public realm is heightened beyond creating notable destinations. Her design intention is to revitalize communities, incorporating sustainability and resiliency to position open spaces as catalysts for social and economic vitality and viability.

With more than 20 years of experience, Gail has led the urban design, master planning, and detailed design of a variety of projects and scales. Her work ranges from city planning to detailed streetscape design.

She joined our team in 2010, and her subsequent project portfolio includes campus master plans, heritage conservation district plans, and downtown plans. She has also worked on detailed streetscape and open space design, waterfront master plans, community improvements plans, secondary plans, and open space master plans.

Gail has played a significant role as project manager and senior urban designer on several award-winning projects. She contributed her expertise to Toronto’s Seneca College Three Campuses master plan, the Campus master plan for Brock University in St. Catharines, ON, and the Open Space master plan for the University of Toronto.

She also worked on the National Park master plan and the physical development plan for Barbados. In addition to her design expertise, Gail is a skilled project manager, public consultation facilitator, and graphic designer who creates compelling and visionary hand renderings.
