Jacklyn Short

LandArch. Intern, OALA

Landscape architectural intern, techie, gravity-sport enthusiast, youth sport champion

Although “born and raised” in Oakville, Ontario, Jacklyn joined pl.ural (formerly SKA) from Revelstoke, BC when she came on as a Landscape Architectural Intern; she is an associate member of the OALA, working towards full licensure as a Landscape Architect.

Jacklyn’s skills are many, and increasing, her versatility is well-served through interests in landscape, technology, well-designed things, organization, recreation and sport – she contributes to many of the firm’s projects, in many ways, and especially in areas of analysis, conceptual and detailed design, preparation of technical drawings, written work and graphic communication.

Having worked in the outdoor recreation industry for many years, Jacklyn holds an obvious interest and passion about recreation-focused design and planning, their communities, and especially sites featuring unique topography and natural heritage. Her curiosity and enthusiasm to learn has enabled her involvement in a wide range of projects pertaining to data collection & technology (GPS, stadiametric and drone surveying!), design for community and recreation facilities, waterfront and shorelines, wayfinding and signage design, trail environments and planning, site remediation, and more. Her recent projects include involvement in the Port Hope Landscape Remediation project, the Walkerton’s Downtown Market Garden design, the Selkirk Summerhaven Waterfront Park Design, the Elora Cemetery Expansion project, Huntsville’s Wayfinding Strategy and the Haldimand County Comprehensive Signage Strategy.

As a gravity-sports enthusiast, Jacklyn would be on one of her many (mountain/gravel) bikes when not in the pl.ural office and continues her commitment to youth sport, during the winter months, as a certified snowboarder instructor.
