Rachel works in the landscape architecture group of a global environmental engineering firm. She is involved in a diversity of projects,
including the design of public parks, recreational facilities, green infrastructure, streetscapes, stream restoration, and coastal embankment stabilization.
She says landscape architecture has proven to be a perfect outlet for her passion for the environment and her concern over climate change and its effects.
Landscape artchitects are among the leaders of this global fight.
Each day, Rachel leaves work feeling as though she has done something constructive for our planet, its changing
climate, and the people who live in it. It is a career at the intersection of technical and creative, which allows
for the opportunity to design bold, inspired, and beautiful solutions to real and pressing problems. While still a
student, Rachel completed a summer landscape architecture internship with the Sudbury Design Group.
While at UMass, Rachel was:
• Co-President of the UMass Student Chapter of the Boston Society of Landscape Architects
