Bio:

I am currently working as a Landscape Designer for a mid-sized landscape architecture firm in Boston. Over the next few years I’m working to get certified as a registered Landscape Architect. I finished my Master of Landscape Architecture in June 2021. While at Oxy, I took classes that focused on historical architecture, urban planning, and public art. I found my interests in art, horticulture, and working with children, to intersect in the field of landscape architecture. With the help of a few great professors who mentored me, I went straight to graduate school at University of Washington after Oxy. If you’re interested in how to manipulate your Oxy education into a design field such as landscape architecture, architecture, or urban planning, I would be happy to chat with you!
