The greatest benefits of hiring a designer first for your next project is the ability to competitively bid (request estimates from multiple contractors), and having the piece of mind you are comparing prices for equal products and services. 

With fifteen years and a wide-range of experience, my multifaceted, thoughtful approach to site design stems from my experience in a myriad of projects seen from concept through construction. Projects include the preservation of historic estates; rehabilitation of parks and streetscapes; design of green roofs and courtyards; and the planning of campus, rooftop, therapeutic and residential gardens.

In the spring of 2015, I began my own practice after relocating from Jamaica Plain, MA and the birth of my second daughter.  Prior to this, I worked at Dan Gordon Associates Wellesley, MA for nearly two years,  However, the majority of my professional experience has been within the public realm at the following Boston/Cambridge based firms: Copley Wolff Design Group, Pressley Associates, the Cecil Group, and an internship at Halvorson Design Partnership.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture at University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in 2003 and spent a semester studying architecture and urban design in Copenhagen, Denmark.  I am licensed and insured (MA-LA 1535).
