Planner, project manager, policy developer, stakeholder engagement enthusiast and mentor; Heather Chilsolm is a “Jill” of all trades, and B&A is delighted to welcome her to the Edmonton Office where she will fulfill the role of Senior Planner. Heather’s 10 years of planning experience in the private and public sector will make her an invaluable addition to the B&A team, specifically in the Edmonton region, where she brings seven years of municipal experience as a Planner with the City of Edmonton.
In her new role, Heather will work alongside Brian Murray, Associate and Manager of the Edmonton Office, to provide innovative and customized planning solutions. As a project manager and IAP2-trained planning professional, Heather brings a range of experience from large scale regional plans, to localized subdivisions and rezonings. Heather also has hands-on experience in facilitation, negotiation, and effective stakeholder engagement. With her extensive planning knowledge and deep understanding of the municipal landscape, she will be a key driver of continued success in the Edmonton region.
“The opportunity to help grow the Edmonton office blends my recent education experience with my passion for planning and engaging stakeholders to achieve success,” says Heather.
Looking to continuously expand and enhance her skillsets, Heather is currently pursuing her Master of Business Administration (MBA) online through Dalhousie University. She sees her MBA as an opportunity to learn more about the financial aspect of the development industry and understand the true costs of city building.
Heather’s expertise and passions extend beyond planning, as an active member of her community she coaches for the Special Olympics and volunteers for the Urban Land Institute Events Committee and the Edmonton Coalition on Housing and Homelessness.
B&A is excited to have Heather as a highly-talented and versatile addition to our team, and we are proud that she acts as a great contributor within her community. Welcome!
