I plan beautiful places that give people choices. As a Principal at Canin Associates, I help developers and communities build and rebuild neighborhoods where walking or biking to run an errand or go to school is a safe and pleasant experience. We design places that work for tweens, grandmas, and everyone in between.

I went to high school in a suburb where I was trapped until I got my driver’s license. At CNU, I learned it didn’t have to be that way. We have choices about what kind of communities we want to build for ourselves and our kids.

In addition to advising communities as my day job, I spend many nights serving on community committees and nonprofit boards to make the place I live safer and more comfortable for people who want to or have to walk to work, the grocery store, or wherever else life takes them. 

I served on CNU Board from 2012 - 2018 and the chair/co-chair of CNU NextGen prior to 2012. Locally I serve as the point of contact for CNU Orlando and as a board member of Bike/Walk Central Florida.
