While at Parks Canada, she led the development of the Canadian Register of Historic Places and subsequently served as the Manager of the Federal Heritage Buildings Review Office. She has taught heritage conservation at the University of Victoria and Carleton University, where she is an Adjunct Professor, and is a Faculty Associate at the Willowbank School of Restoration Arts in Queenston, Ontario.
