Lori-Jo grew up on a family ranch on the edge of the wilderness of northern Alberta. She holds a Masters of Environmental Design in Urban and Regional Planning and a Heritage Resource Management Certificate.
At work, you will find her connecting with innovators, investors and municipalities helping to bring Alberta plant and bio-based products to growth markets. On weekend days, you will find her biking, hiking, cross-country skiing and paddling in search of wildflowers and wildlife moments; and, in the evenings, telling stories and laughing around a campfire with her husband and two daughters.
Legacy’s three key areas for conservation—land that is ecologically, agriculturally and historically important—mirror her own three core areas of care and respect for Alberta’s landscapes.
