Emily joined i.e. Engineering’s design team as a landscape designer, environmental specialist, and planner in June 2014 after earning a Master of Landscape Architecture from Mississippi State University. During her three years at Mississippi State, Emily had the opportunity to work on research and design projects focused on urban stormwater solutions for watershed conservation, regenerative design approaches, playground design, and campus design. Emily’s experience at i.e. Engineering includes a variety of projects such as commercial planting plans, site design, neighborhood layouts, downtown streetscape design projects and several recreation focused projects. She is currently designing site amenities including cart paths and plant design for a new golf course and RV resort in Melrose,Oregon, a campground and day use area design on the Oregon Coast for Douglas County Parks with heavy emphasis on public involvement, and layout and design of site amenities for a solar cottage pocket neighborhood in Roseburg, OR. As a designer, Emily strives to create a sense of place in every built project both large and small, and is passionate about creating spaces that educate and inspire. When she is not in the office, Emily enjoys hiking and travelling where she collects design inspiration from nature and the built environment. Emily continues her professional education by taking environmental training courses through Portland State University where in 2016 she completed her wetland delineation certification coursework. Emily stays involved and connected to the local community by volunteering as a board member for Umpqua Habitat for Humanity, Umpqua Community College Foundation, and the Umpqua Valley Arts Association.
