Carol is passionate about the profession of landscape architecture and believes our time has come to take the lead:
“Together as a national association, we have the numbers and the will to move forward and initiate change for the betterment of where and how we live. Our mandate, to be stewards of our man-made and natural environments, is better understood by other professionals, governments and the public at large, than ever before. This helps set the stage for landscape architecture to become stronger as we work as one across provincial/territorial boundaries to increase our profile, our scope and the implicit value of our profession.”
