  • Summary
    My mission as an Emergency Management and Business Continuity professional can be summarized in 3 words; Systematic, holistic, and innovative.


    I strongly believe not only in the value of carefully crafted plans, but also thoughtful and strategic program development. A program that has carefully considered the need for flexibility and availability, and is based on evidence-based risk assessment, has the potential to be a very powerful mechanism for response and recovery.

    Such program development is fundamentally linked with good management and use of data, keeping pace with digital transformation, and evidence-based design.


    Finding ways to improve the quality of both programs and approaches to Emergency Management, in spite of resource challenges, is a cornerstone of my approach to all aspects of my work.

    Relationship-building and collaboration are key to building holistic and inclusive programs. I am always mindful of the value of forging bonds between community, private and public-sector partners, building combined and collective capacity to create robust and responsive programs.


    My mission in every engagement is to innovate and strive for continuous improvement of existing programs. Through working across Canada, I’ve had the opportunity to experience Emergency Management in a variety of different communities.

    Innovation can be seen as a challenge and change can be uncomfortable. However, when used correctly, both can be valuable tools in the face of a rapidly changing, complex and ever-more digital world. Understanding these shifts can help policy makers, business leaders, and workers develop programs that keep pace with the reality of Emergency response, to create meaningful change and improvement.
