I have obtained my Masters in Landscape Architecture at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science & Forestry. I have also already earned a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and an International Relations Minor at Franklin Pierce in New Hampshire.

I just finished a four month internship with C.R.E.W. (Centre for Regeneration Excellence Wales); I was researching, producing graphics, presenting at international conferences and sharing my capstone research with this public entity in the United Kingdom. I looked at the feasibility of converting defunct coal factories into biofuel energy centers for processing native fibers in combination with sustainable willow. The waste heat in this process is used for district heating as well as to heat acres of greenhouses that will produce local food thus reducing the food footprint and providing jobs. As there is generational poverty in these post-industrial sites I also researched skills trade training on site such as culinary and horticulture programs. The goal of this project is to create a “Campus Design” that integrates local sustainable industry with synergistic and complimentary industries that reinforce each other. If you are interested in this project and wish to view a sample of my work, I urge you to review my blog at

I have a strong relationship with the connection of people and place and would embrace the opportunity to utilize my skills and knowledge of landscape architecture design. In my education and experience I have shown growth and success in the fields of environmental science, international relations and landscape architecture. I would be a valuable asset to a firm as I am knowledgeable in the field, personable, intelligent, patient and passionate about the profession.
