I am a driven individual with a passion for the design and development of exterior space. Enchanted with an introductory class at the University of Manitoba in September 2001, I enrolled in the Faculty of Architecture the following year, combining a strong work ethic with a nagging desire to create. With the successful completion of the Environmental Design Program in June 2005, I was equipped with a variety of skills which enabled me to develop as a landscape designer, gaining practical experience in the profession at St. Mary’s Nursery & Garden Centre, and subsequently Greencut Environmental Services in Winnipeg, Canada. In May, I received my Masters degree in Landscape Architecture from the U of M and am seeking permanent, full-time employment at a firm in the United States in pursuit of broader career experiences, mentorship and the possibility of professional licensure.
