  1. How long have you been in the A/E industry: 14 years
  2. Why or what influenced you to get into this industry? Throughout my more formative years, I worked for a stone company that harvested Pennsylvania bluestone and field stone, sorted it, and stacked it onto pallets for use in a structure or landscape. It was intriguing to me that there were professionals who were responsible for delineating a certain type of stone to serve a specific application in the landscape. This, combined with my affinity for nature, led me to pursue an education and ultimately a career in Landscape Architecture
