Congratulations Kaitlynn Given!

Kaitlynn Given has recently returned to CTQ after completing her Bachelor of Arts Degree at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus (UBCO), where she majored in Geography.

During her time at UBCO, Kaitlynn was an integral member of the UBCO Heat volleyball team.  In 2016, Kaitlynn had the fortune to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they stopped by the university to watch a game. As one of three co-captains, she was asked to present the Royals with UBCO Heat jerseys.

After taking some time off from school, Kaitlynn is planning on pursuing her master’s degree. In the meantime, Kaitlynn has accepted a position with CTQ in the Planning and Urban Design department, where she will gain essential hands on and practical experience.

CTQ would like to congratulate Kaitlynn on her achievements and welcome her back to the CTQ team.
