The What

The one reason you are motivated to go to work every day?

I work with so many smart, creative people who come to work each day with their ‘A’ game. That’s very inspiring to me.

How you use your "Why" mentioned above, to inspire staff and clients?

It’s part of the culture at our office to push for and deliver great work and when you have many people all aligned with the same focus, the inspiration to deliver this comes easily and from within.

A dream client of yours to work with? Your favorite campaign you have worked on?

I’d have to say all of my clients are dream clients; I could never pick just one.

What woman or women, have impacted your life the most (personally or professionally)?

My mother. A stay-at-home mom who was also a talented artist, chef, writer, vocal and opinionated feminist, and who always believed in bringing kids to the adult table for all family occasions. Raise Her Up - Martha - Poppy Barley

What is one thing about yourself, that people will be surprised to hear?

I’ve traveled twice to Japan, on a promotional tour, with a talking robot.

One piece of advice you would give your younger self?

Ask more questions and make the most of every opportunity you’re given.

How do you see Edmonton evolving and changing in the next 5 years? 10 years?

Edmonton’s transformation has been exponential in the past few years. I believe the food and arts scene and our community-minded culture combined with the city’s entrepreneurial essence are going to continue to inspire and evolve the city. That will make the city an accessible, sustainable and exciting place to live and work.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
