Lara’s career began over 20 years ago with work in landscape maintenance, construction and horticulture. This experience in parks, botanical gardens and private residences across Canada established a strong practical foundation for Lara’s design work. After earning an MLArch degree in 2010, Lara became a registered member of the BC Society of Landscape Architects and has since developed a portfolio of work that includes cemeteries, memorials, parks, boutique residential, multi family, restoration and institutional sites. She has also served as adjunct faculty in the UBC Master of Landscape Architecture Program.
Lara’s practical experience combined with a Fine Arts background and degrees in both Psychology and Landscape Architecture has given her design practice a broad and well-rounded approach. She is a critical thinker and problem solver with an artist’s eye for aesthetics and details.
In her downtime, Lara spends as much time with her family as possible.
