Jayleen Chivers


Jayleen’s passion lies in the role the built environment can play in improving the social realm of communities and promoting inclusion. Her previous experience in the field and technical background complement her design studies at the University of Calgary. Following her completion of the M.Arch program, she plans to begin her internship and focus on community-centered design. She hopes to continue travelling, perhaps while working abroad, and to always be a life-long learner.
