Michelle graduated with her Master of Architecture from The University of Hong Kong in 2015, and completed her Bachelor of Environmental Design with a focus in Architecture from The University of Manitoba in 2013. Having been educated and trained in Hong Kong for 2 years and surrounded by a different architectural context: cultural history, and political situation; Michelle has an enriched perspective and understanding of architecture, architectural discourse, and practise.
Michelle has worked in offices, as a summer student, in Montreal, Dongguan (China), and Hong Kong. She brings a broad range of skills from her background in Architecture and Design and from her interests in music, art, and travel. She is thoughtful, progressive, detail oriented and sensitive towards the phenomenology of a place.
Her strengths include technical skills such as Revit, Rhinoceros, CAD, graphic design, and artistic rendering. Michelle has a keen focus for producing high quality, thoughtful work, and her desire to learn and grow are assets in her ever expanding role in Stantec’s Buildings Group
Michelle is interested in exploring architecture as an art, technology, environmental agent and a medium to navigate the richness and diversity of the architectural practice. She embrace the idea that architecture embodies and engages our most fundamental desires and aspirations. Michelle believes that architecture has the potential to influence, and mediate political and cultural acts as well as translate those thoughts into the built environment. She welcome the opportunity to further my education and continue to find creative ways to look at architecture.

Every year, the Loran Scholars Foundation invests in exceptional young Canadians who demonstrate character, service and leadership. We look for qualities that a transcript alone cannot show: personal integrity and character; commitment to service and an entrepreneurial spirit; breadth in academic and extra-curricular interests; strongly developed inner-directedness; and outstanding overall potential for leadership. Through the country’s most rigorous and personalized selection process, which includes interviews at the regional and national level, we select the top 30 of approximately 3,600 applicants as Loran Scholars.
Each Loran Scholar receives an award valued at up to $100,000 for their undergraduate studies. For four years, they receive the mentorship, financial independence and opportunities to seek out how they can most effectively contribute to society. Graduating scholars join a network of nearly 400 alumni who support each other as they take on leadership responsibilities beyond their years in business, public policy, medicine, law, academia, the arts and many other disciplines.
The Youth Leadership Scholarship Program recognizes students who have engaged in meaningful leadership and citizenship volunteer activities during the past year that were targeted at promoting healthy living in their communities and schools.
