Elite athlete, urban practitioner, and backcountry traveler, Vessel’s Managing Director of Operations, Zanny, is a rockstar. Motivated by people, big mountains, and the macro and micro processes of city creation she has mastered the art of coalescing adventure, education and work, resonating it all into a single way of seeing and acting in the world. Zanny’s passion for combining spatial and social planning practices with equitable community development was initially sparked while pursuing a Human Geography focused BA in interdisciplinary studies at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC. She refined her insatiable curiosity for urban studies after completing her Masters of Science in Design and Urban Ecologies at Parsons The New School for Design in May of 2016. Zanny manages all of this while basking in a rich city life, and dutifully responding to the omnipresent call of the mountains.
