As a Planner and resident Archaeologist with Crosby Hanna & Associates, Maggie enjoys the diversity of her position, relaxed atmosphere and friendly co-workers.

An Architectural Technologist with Crosby Hanna & Associates, she draws on her passion for design and a diploma in Architectural and Building Technologies from SIAST to help the landscape architects and planners take projects from concept to completion.
While much of her days are spent at the computer immersed in AutoCAD, Karen takes care of a gamut of things, ranging from preparing and printing project documents to contract administration, research, and clerical tasks.
