She develops, alternates and criticizes design and drawings for the delivery of landscape architecture projects of several stages. She demonstrates an understanding of the relationship between design and constructability by frequently focusing on site inspections and construction supervisions. She manages the project coordination phases of multiple projects with multiple disciplines and in addition she takes role in managing client relationship. She supports in preparation of proposals, participate in public presentations and collaborates with decision-makers in developing requirements.
