Arielle Dillonsmith email@example.com
Arielle is a commercial real estate lawyer in downtown Toronto, but she hardly seems like the corporate type. Arielle believes that urban intensification presents new opportunities for conservation, and hopes to use her passion for development to promote environmental education. Arielle is optimistic that as vertical communities become more prevalent, spaces will be created for common gardening, and she also encourages developers to consider the economic benefits of using native plants in their projects.
