Alison was born in England, raised in Canada, and proud of it. She retains the distinct and endearing language characteristics of those regions and has educated us on the merits of McVities “digestives”. Her design skills are just as strong as her opinions (think “Lucy” from “Peanuts”). Alison has an undeniable passion for landscape architecture and all things “design”. She is a lover of the outdoors and bikes to work most days. She is also an avid hiker and camper. When she isn’t working, you can find her in her beautiful garden which she lovingly tends. Alison recently added "new mom" to her resume with the birth of her daughter, Anna.
Since joining SSA in 2006, Alison has become an integral part of the team through her creative design and project management of large scale, high profile projects. She excels in communicating her ideas to clients and consultants through her exceptional hand renderings and technical drawings. Her responsibilities include site analysis, design, scheduling, document production, construction administration and public workshops. With 13 plus years of professional experience, her designs stand out within the landscape architecture profession and continually surpass our client’s expectations. Alison has a Bachelor’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of British Columbia. She is a licensed Landscape Architect.
