At a party in The Core’s Devonian Gardens last Thursday night, Avenue Magazine revealed its Top 40 Under 40 class for 2012. One by one, we met 40 of our city’s best and brightest under the age of 40. As always, the group is an inspiring bunch. I was particularly excited for the party, not to mention seeing Avenue’s November issue, because I was lucky enough to meet and write about three of the people in the group:
Kaysi Fagan, a criminal defence lawyer:
Jason Hatcher, a master campaign strategist:
And Dr. Shelagh Coutts, a stroke neurologist:
I loved meeting these three high-achieving Calgarians. Meeting outstanding people — and having the opportunity to share their stories — is one of my favourite things about writing. To check out their stories, just click on their names above. To see the full Top 40 Under 40 list, head here. Congratulations to everyone on the list!
And thanks to the crew at Avenue for including me on your Contributors page. I’m thrilled to be part of such a great issue!
