Welcome to Do Process!
Partnered since 2005, Susan Nurse and Valda Dohlen bring together over three decades of combined experience

With an extensive background in conflict resolution and public
policy, we have worked with a broad range of clientele, including provincial and federal governments, non-profit agencies
