Kate Hayes: Landscape Architecture
After graduating, Kate (Earth Systems BS ’08) worked at several different organizations including a sustainable buildings company, an urban design and consulting firm, and National Geographic. Kate has now decided to attend the University of Virginia to pursue a Masters degree in Landscape Architecture. Kate hopes to combine her Earth Systems knowledge with landscape architecture and concentrate her graduate studies in urban design. She wants to revitalize old downtown areas using concepts of adaptive reuse and smart growth to make urban spaces more sustainable and pedestrian-friendly.
