What excites you most about the future with Castlemain?
There is an incredible variety of work in various stages. From a real estate perspective, being able to help communities realize economic opportunities will be rewarding, assisting in community capacity building, identifying and leveraging possibilities and working on projects that have realizable steps built into a long-term strategy is exciting.
If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see?
The moon landing. It is only very recent from a historical perspective, but I am intrigued by the innovate spirit and energy that would have been required to have propelled the moon landing from a lofty idea to success in a short period.
Is there anything you’re particularly excited to work on at Castlemain?
Continued efforts to build on past successes through the collaboration of the various specialties, each of which is unique. Having communications specialists working alongside economic development members, who all share their vision within a lands perspective is a fantastic model moving forward.
