I entered this field with the goal of creating healthier communities and healthier ecosystems through the design (and redesign) of our built environment. Over the past 14 years, I’ve been fortunate to learn from and collaborate with many talented and knowledgeable people who are working towards these same goals. I am continually inspired by the work of my colleagues at Alta, and by the people I meet from the different cities and organizations with which I work. My personal mission is to carry out each task for each project as well as I possibly can, so that our clients and their communities can enthusiastically adopt and implement our plans.
