I lead WVU's Sustainable Trails Curriculum, am a licensed landscape architect and Associate Professor with West Virginia University and am passionate about equity and access. With a degree in botany, trainings in stream restoration and prescribed fire management, I epitomize the "Jack (Jill) of all trades" landscape architect type, but I especially love the early visioning and strategy stages of projects and finding data to back decision making.
