I am a practicing Landscape Architect and Senior Lecturer in the College of Design at Iowa State University.
Through my practice, I work with nonprofit organizations and communities to develop long-range visions for future land use and programming.
I believe there is an opportunity to integrate environmental stewardship into more than my clients' outdoor educational programs. I also believe there is an opportunity to use the natural landscape as a setting to foster environmental stewardship.
Therefore, I strive to develop designs that support my clients' program, enrich the outdoor experience and incorporate principles of environmental stewardship. I firmly believe in maintaining a balance between site and structure so the outdoor program areas and structures I design are in harmony with the natural setting.
