Why am I an RGD?It is important to have a community of like-minded peers who speak the same “language”. With a hectic schedule, professional development is often left on the back burner. With RGD I felt like I could connect with my professional community and have opportunities for professional development.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?The 2019 Design Thinker's Conference in Vancouver was definitely my most memorable moment so far, followed closely by the 2019 InHouse Design Conference in Vancouver - so many designers under one roof - from a myriad of disciplines and roles, sharing common experiences, challenges and goals.
Where do I see myself in 5 years?In five years, I would like to see myself continuing to learn and evolve, facilitating collaborative learning projects and mentoring student designers.
Contributions to RGD in 2018Since becoming RGD certified, I have attended the 2019 Design Thinker's Conference in Vancouver, participated in the judging of the RGD Student Design Awards, provided portfolio feedback to a Provisional RGD, joined the RGD Certification Committee and hosted a Round Table Discussion at InHouse Design Conference.
