Biotech enthusiast; innovation lover; corny joke connoisseur.

Anita is a Venture Leader at the Creative Destruction Lab – Rockies with a background in science-based business development and pun-tastic banter. Her love of innovation and entrepreneurship landed her here after a Masters of Biomedical Technology at the University of Calgary, and several years working with a company that funds and manages genomics research in Alberta. She believes strongly in the importance of community involvement and enjoys lively discussions around global issues, sustainable agriculture and anything fun. When she’s not in the office, you’ll find her hiking, biking or enjoying coffee (or local brews) with friends. She’s excited to be collaborating with driven members of the Calgary Shaper Hub to contribute to positive, scalable change in Calgary by encouraging more Calgarians to get involved in their community – our home.
