Certainly she’s fun, energetic and creative, but you’d be hard-pressed to find an adjective that can begin to capture the real Stephanie. A technical school graduate in Media Arts Production, Stephanie has taken her love of photography, film and graphic design and fused them all into an unexpected career as a CAD Technologist with Crosby Hanna & Associates. For an artist like Stephanie, the relaxed, friendly and inspiring atmosphere at Crosby Hanna feels so much like home, it’s a wonder she doesn’t wear pyjamas to work.
Stephanie’s great sense of humour and contagious, easy laugh instantly endear her to clients and co-workers alike. When it comes to work though, she’s downright serious – applying her artistic passion and eye for detail to every plan she designs. From drawing concept plans for the architects to photographing projects onsite, Stephanie’s creative muscle gets plenty exercise.
Leah graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts and completed her Master of Landscape Architecture degree in 2013, beginning her career with Crosby Hanna as a Landscape Architect shortly thereafter. Outdoor spaces are where Leah finds her joy. In her free time you can find her somewhere along the river enjoying the sights Saskatoon has to offer. She enjoys being involved in a wide range of projects, which give her the opportunity to further her knowledge of plant species, get outside on site visits, to be creative and experience the different stages of a project from start to finish.
If the key to the future is in the past, then Maggie – with both a Bachelor of Science Honours and Master of Arts in Archaeology – is Crosby Hanna & Associates’ unequivocal keeper of the key. A former field technician, project manager for an archaeological consulting firm and instructor at the University of Saskatchewan, Maggie decided it was time for a change in scenery and went in search of new challenges. As a Planner and resident Archaeologist with Crosby Hanna & Associates, Maggie enjoys the diversity of her position, relaxed atmosphere and friendly co-workers. While her area of expertise is in heritage screenings/reviews for land use planning, Maggie’s talents shine in everything she does, whether she’s preparing bylaws or assisting with open houses.
Karen has been in love with drafting ever since she chanced to take it as a high school elective. 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. Somehow she even manages to find time to get a breath of fresh air once in a while on site visits. For Karen, the most rewarding part of her job comes from collaborating with co-workers, clients and consultants to deliver an exceptional end product.
