Beverly joined EcoVue in May 2018 as a Land Use and Environmental Planner. Since joining the team, she has applied her nine years of experience in environmental and land use planning to both advise municipal clients on environmental policy implications and help local community members and developers move forward with land use planning projects, such as subdivision proposals, zoning by-law amendments, and severances. In addition to her work with EcoVue Beverly also mentors and teaches up-and-coming land use planners, as a professor in the Applied Environmental Planning Certification Program at Fleming College.
Prior to joining EcoVue, Beverly developed a wide range of skills while working in environmental planning and policy development positions at various governmental organizations. These organizations included local Conservation Authorities, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, Environment and Climate Change Canada, and a regional planning agency in Wisconsin. This broad background has equipped Beverly with a well-rounded understanding of provincial, federal and international environmental planning policies and practices; knowledge she continues to use effectively in her work with EcoVue.
Beverly has a Bachelor’s of Science (B.Sc.) degree in Environmental Science, as well as a Master’s of Science (M.Sc.) degree in Aquatic Resources. Based on her past professional experience, Beverly has the qualifications necessary to obtain her Environmental Professional Certification and Candidate Membership in the Ontario Professional Planners Institute. She is currently pursuing both of these through a “prior learning assessment” process, which involves submitting a portfolio of her past work for review by unbiased professionals in her field. All the best in your continued education Beverly!
