Curriculum Vitae


Visualizing possibilities, whether in community designs, scholarship or organizational change, has shaped my work. I work across scales and boundaries seeking new opportunities to make connections between people and ideas that can shape places and thinking. My teaching is supported by scholarship that includes longstanding engagement in and reflection upon interdisciplinary community-based collaborations and, more recently, leadership of the master’s project and report sequence in our department.

Practice in architecture, planning and urban design offices in Boston, Dallas and San Antonio framed my early professional experience. My education includes a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Kansas State, a Masters in City Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and completion of the Management Development Program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been honored with recognition of my teaching and scholarship within the university and nationally. Engagement in our local and regional communities through service on the Manhattan Urban Area Planning Board and Mid America Regional Council committees allows opportunities for me to apply the values and knowledge of our department. My commitment to enhancing professional planning and design education led me to service on the Landscape Architecture Magazine Editorial Committee, leadership of the ASLA Council on Education and membership on the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board.
