Guillienne “Gail” Dumlao

Business Analyst

Hi, I am Guillienne Dumlao, but most people call me Gail! I am a Business Analyst who finished Digital Media & IT - Business Analyst concentration at NAIT. I am originally from the Philippines and moved to Jasper, Alberta, about five years ago, where the beautiful mountains are. It was an incredible and fun experience for me to work with the VVOA team and learn not about technical stuff but also about the vegan and vegetarian world.

Matthew Jones

Web Designer & Developer

Hey, I'm Matt! I'm an emerging web designer & developer. I'm a metalhead who thoroughly enjoys coming up with eccentric designs and concepts, then learning how to make those ideas functional. From an Adobe Illustrator guide festooned with space raccoons, to a Soviet Revolution inspired recipe sharing blog, to a horror-themed photoshoot my projects have always been unique and a little ridiculous. Outside of the classroom I'm a founder and organizer of the YEG Jr Developers group.

Hello! I'm Nica! 🌸 I'm a designer who is passionate about UX & UI design and front-end web development. I love being able to create designs that people can find joy in. Working with VVoA has been super fun and fulfilling as a student, designer, and individual. I've learned so much during this incredible experience, both in design & development and about the plant-based lifestyle. When I have spare time, I enjoy playing video games, reading, and crocheting!

Reyna Wiberg

Graphic Designer & Digital Illustrator

Hi, I'm Reyna! I'm a graphic designer/digital illustrator from Edmonton, AB and a NAIT Digital Media & IT Co-op: Visual Communications graduate. When I'm not designing, you can find me hanging with my cats, enjoying delicious vegan food, and bouldering. I've been an animal lover since childhood, which inspired me to go vegan in 2018. It's been an honour working with VVOA. I'm thankful for the experience I've gained, and I'm eager to apply it in my future career. Check out my portfolio to see more of my designs and if you like my work, feel free to contact me!
