As a California native, I am drawn to spending as much time outdoors as possible. Pursuing a design education furthered my enthusiasm for the outdoors and curiosity about the environment. My goal is to work on projects that connect people to nature and improve local ecology. I plan to continue my training by becoming a licensed landscape architect and am currently working on becoming a SITES-accredited professional. Most days I spend my time gardening, nature journaling, baking, or exploring the outdoors with my husband and three little boys.
