Better Know an LFer: Jennifer Young

Posted by on 4/17/14 at 03:42pm

“If you happen to overhear someone saying something like, ‘sore-ey… but, you must have your drawings to me before too-mour-row’ chances are you’ve been listening to one of our favorite resident Canadians, Jennifer Young, working her magic on one of our many (sometimes slippery) consulting engineers. Hailing originally from the great northern Provence of Newfoundland, Jennifer has now acclimated to a yearlong summer and shivers at the thought of anything below 60 degrees with a breeze. But don’t let her lack of thermal resistance fool you — she is one tough hombre… if you don’t believe that just dump your plastic in the trash bin and find out. 

I love giving Jennifer a hard time but truthfully she is an indispensable member of our incredible Lake|Flato team. So don’t let the funny pronunciations thr-row yah. Jennifer young has the heart of an artist and a true passion for doing great work.” – Bob Harris
