Joined Landmark Design in 2001

As a student I envisioned a future filled with days spent designing thoughtful, beautiful landscapes. Landmark Design presented me with much more, providing an expanded understanding of the possibilities of how to apply my desires and skills. From day one, I have been involved with both landscape architecture and planning projects, working on everything from parks and recreation master plans and city general plans to the design of national park landscapes and residential gardens. I enjoy the opportunity to learn, the unique challenges of each project and the ability to have a positive impact on my community.

I enjoy spending my free time with my husband skiing, mountain biking, trail running and hiking. I also have a passion for oil painting, yoga, and traveling down new roads or through unknown towns and places whenever the opportunity arises.
