As a member of the Landscape Architecture team, Katie works alongside multiple GH2 teams to carry a seamless design from the built structure and weave it into the landscape design. Katie takes pride in placing program elements in relative locations to each other. She begins her design process by finding an abstract form or pattern for inspiration and then analyzing the functionality or lack of functionality between two program elements to form an initial concept in her designs. As an aspiring Landscape Architect, Katie feels it is significant to be conscious of the environment while also educating the public about the importance of creating sustainable spaces no matter their function. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Landscape Architecture with an Emphasis in Horticulture Communications and continues to have a strong passion for the horticulture world.
