I am a landscape architect practicing in Wheaton, Illinois. I started
DESIGN WITH NATURE about seven years ago. I do primarily residential landscape design in the Chicago suburbs. I also do educational speaking for garden clubs in Illinois.
Prior to creating DESIGN WITH NATURE, I practiced as a landscape architect and city planner for the Village of Schaumburg as their staff design planner and landscape architect. I then went on to do planning consulting at Camiros, Ltd. in downtown Chicago. Camiros is a nationally recognized planning, landscape architecture and economic development consulting firm. While raising my children I did free-lance landscape architecture work under the business name of LSC Associates.
I have my bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and my masters of science in Urban Planning from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. I enjoy doing on-going continuing education through the horticulture program and the Morton Arboretum and Chicago Botanic Garden as well as by attending conferences through the American Society of Landscape Architects, of which I have been a member for 36 years.
I have had the joy of landscaping at my own home for 25 years and I am active in Wheaton Garden Club.
