My name is Katrina- I graduated from the Landscape Architecture program at Rutgers University in NJ. I have experience working at Melillo and Bauer Associates in NJ as a designer, where I focused mostly on urban design projects, transit villages using CAD and Adobe CS. I also have experience working at a cost estimating and engineering firm.
I've since been laid off in NJ, and moved out to Oakland CA! I started my own business, doing mostly residential and pro bono campus/school design, and am looking to diversify my experience with more complex projects. I'm currently employed at Riverbed Technology; while this is not a landscape architecture firm, I am experiencing things that will help me be a better Land Arch.
