Meet Kourtney Branagan
I have roots and choose to live in Ward 11 with my family. Having worked, lived, and gone to school in the ward for close to 25 years, I have been a leader and contributed to many community building initiatives. Rooted in relationships, I know projects are successful when we choose a mindset of working together, approaching challenges to find balanced positive outcomes, and by using data to support decision making.
As a mom with school aged children and with parents and grandparents in the city, I know neighbourhoods need to balance the needs of residents across the stages of their lives. As a leader in the technology sector, I knows a thriving economy is vital to the city and creating a sustainable future is important to our global position.
I have many plants to water, am a DIY whiz, work in my garden annually, and enjoy the abundance of nature in and around Calgary. I ride roller coasters, love my paddleboard, and have a fantastic hand thrown coffee mug collection.
