Kelsi Hurlbut

Director at Large

Kelsi moved to Ramsay in 2015. A landscape architect by trade, Kelsi is passionate about activating spaces and encouraging pedestrian-centric environments. What Kelsi loves most about Ramsay is the sense of community, the history, and that it is an inner city neighbourhood bordered by rivers and pathways. On summer evenings, catch Kelsi up at the Ramsay ball diamond for "Tornado Tuesdays" - a drop in weekly softball game for all ages and abilities.

Christine joined the Ramsay Board to give back to this community that provides its residents so much. Beautiful walks along the river with her dog Tucker, awesome rinks to skate at in the winter with her partner, and very close access to some of Alberta's best hops + barley! Not to mention the amazing community - Ramsay truly has it all and Christine is proud to be your neighbour!
