bio

I combined my passion for creative analysis and nature by earning dual degrees in Landscape Architecture and Environmental Horticulture & Urban Forestry from the UW; in addition to study in Italy and the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, Edinburgh and Logan, UK.

My design-firm experience spans domestic, international, private, public, residential, institutional and exhibit-design projects. I currently teach, maintain a private practice, serve on my city's Planning Commission, Board of Architectural Review and as a Forest Steward; in addition to coordinating the Homeschool Stewardship Squad.

I am also a homeschooling parent who enjoys sharing my enthusiasm with others and consider the most important curriculum to be my own yard and the natural world. 

You can find my outside somewhere, making art with my kids on the floor or via EM.
