Community is the driving force behind Divine’s work. She relishes the chance to design spaces that are instrumental in community building and enhancing urban ecology.
Before joining PWL, Divine worked in the Planning and Engineering departments of Grande Prairie, AB. She also held the position of Greenest City Scholar in Vancouver, where she led research on the effects of climate change on street planting.
Living out her commitment to giving back, Divine won the Community Advancement Award in 2010 for her work as part of the African Student Association of the University of Alberta, which celebrates the African community on campus and beyond. She also completed the Next Up Program in Edmonton—a national leadership program in social and environmental justice.
