Position: Design Principal

Department: Design Build

Describe Your Job: I work with a team of Landscape Architects, Project Managers and Construction professionals to create beautiful outdoor spaces. My role is to be the client’s advocate through the entire process. The favorite part of my job is seeing our clients use and enjoy the spaces we create.

Time At Mariani: This is my 30-year anniversary!

What Was Your First Job Here: I started out in the design studio as a landscape designer after graduating from Michigan State – Go Green!

Favorite Thing About My Job: We start fresh with every build project and at the end of the day, we have a beautiful new landscape.

Favorite Thing Away From My Job: I love my teammates! There is so much experience and knowledge here, we are all very passionate about what we do.

Great Thing That’s Happened Here: I am amazed how technology has changed since I started at Mariani. We used to have CB radios to communicate with each other and heard everyone’s conversations—let’s just say we got to know each other very well.
