Jane’s favourite thing about working at Gateway is creating theme designs such as Contemporary, French Country or Log Cabin and challenging the custom woodworking capabilities of the Gateway shop. The talented team of cabinetmakers never cease to amaze her with their workmanship. They allow Jane and the rest of the designers to work with their clients and be very creative with their designs.
When not at Gateway, you will find Jane spending time with her family at the cabin or on the soccer field.

Being native to Winnipeg, I have always found inspiration from both classical and modern design while wandering through her many districts and parks. The city provided an art gallery experience for viewing historic and modern architecture and landscape design. This exposure developed into a love for creating beauty through gardening, landscaping and creating aesthetic and function in my spaces and surroundings.
After pursuing an engineering degree, I applied my creativity to engineering projects for a variety of industries and developed skills in project management. I excelled at space optimization and improving function and aesthetics in my projects.
As a past time, I would refine my spaces through renovation and landscaping while also providing design services for people planning home build or renovation projects. “I draw satisfaction from helping people view their space differently, in order to create spaces that inspire, while resonating with a person’s style preferences and function requirements.”
Navigating the range of design and product choices today is often challenging and I enjoy assisting people in planning and executing their projects to a satisfying completion.

Lauren joined the design team in 2020 as a Design Assistant and grew into her role as a Designer. Working with clients to develop their space into not only just a home but a personal oasis has become her motivation.
“Home should be a place where we escape the chaos of life and unwind if not for only a moment. My goal is to assist clients in achieving this and guiding them through the process along the way.”
When I am not designing I can be found orchestrating new recipes in my kitchen or cuddling my cat.
