I started my professional life in biochemistry, but then a great experience with an interior decorator opened my eyes to the wonderful world of design. I completed the George Washington University Landscape Design program in 2008 and never looked back.
I stay current through my membership in the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD). I currently serve as the President of our local chapter, where our emphasis is on building community and providing education for our members.
I’m also a Level 2-certified Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional through the CBLP program. It’s always my intention to challenge myself and what I think I know about best practices- those ideas behind the design that make it function in the best way possible for you and our larger community.
When I’m not designing, you might bump into me out running, walking our Cardigan Corgi (Angus, who has more friends than me), browsing around Merrifield, or working in my garden. More likely, though, I’m hiding somewhere with my nose in a book.
I’m based in Arlington, VA, and work around the DC metro area, providing landscape design and project management services. Maybe in 2024 one of those projects will be with you! ~Maureen
I’ll get to it this winter. ~Every landscape designer, every single year
