More likely to be found on foot than a bike (my dogs have never been fans of two wheels, though my bike offers boundless opportunities for travel and recreation), I learned from an early age how time spent outdoors can foster creativity, exploration, and an overall sense of well-being. Landscape Architecture is one profession that can have profound impacts on communities through promoting active recreation, while increasing livability and community unity by means of vibrant public spaces. I am extremely grateful to have a rewarding career where I can apply my creativity to solutions for a variety of social, ecological, and economic challenges.
