Assisting the design team with data visualization, proposals, social media content, and report design, Alma also works closely with our research and communications teams to identify and overcome communications and accessibility challenges via visual language, ensuring that every client objective is entirely satisfied with our final designs. She brings positivity, open-mindedness, humility, curiosity, and compassion to each project she works on. Our resident lover of all things cute, cuddly, and furry, she also impounds any pet brought to work to ensure that it is shown appropriate care and attention.
Alma has a background in finding creative solutions to complex problems, having worked as a junior product designer for Mustang Survival, where she developed her sewing and pattern drafting skills and learned industry standard procedures in pattern design software. She also worked at Emergco Aerospace where she constructed rescue products used for helicopter external cargo. There, she learned more about product design and procedural testing required to ensure that products are ready for market.
While Alma found working on life-saving products rewarding, she wanted to expand her skillset and work to effect systemic change and improve people’s quality of life. In joining Be the Change Group, Alma seized the opportunity to tackle environmental, social, and economic issues, and collaborate with others who want to make a positive impact.
Alma began her education in General Arts at the University of British Columbia, and graduated with a degree in Product Design from Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Wilson School of Design.
