The core values that drive my work


Never give up; having graduated during the recession, I continuously searched out new opportunities in order to progress my skills and gain employment in my profession.


Communication and transparency are core values that aid my ability to grow in my profession while working remotely since April 2019.


Whether it's to enhance the office environment or simplify the work flow, I'm constantly looking for opportunities to bring new ideas to my work.


After 10 years in the landscape architecture industry, I have recently completed a 6 month intensive course in UX/UI design from U.C. Berkeley Extension in order to evolve my career towards a new path.

Team work

I have experience working in multi-disciplinary teams to collaborate and complete projects, providing regular communication and coordinating integral documents in order to provide high quality deliverables.


Anything worth doing is worth doing right. I graduated on the Dean's List from Purdue University and have continued to excel in my profession, providing client's with the highest level of customer service.
