As we continue to highlight our team for Landscape Architecture Month, we'd like to feature Associate, Jane Theobald, and her interesting background into the profession!
As a kid, I was always drawing house floor plans or building houses with Legos or blocks. Somewhere in middle school, I remember my Mom suggesting landscape architecture instead of architecture since I was the one who kept creating gardens at our new house. In high school, I did a year long research project on landscape architecture, for an “Honors Diploma” and was also allowed to convert my parents grass filled front yard, to a drought tolerant landscape and I loved every minute of both projects.
While I was in college, I worked on the Cal Poly Rose Floats for three years, and ultimately ended up as the Program Leader, my last year. It was through this demonstration of leadership and project management skills, plus a background of building things with my dad, that I landed my first job as a project manager at a landscape construction firm. That’s where I learned how important correctly detailed information really is…
After getting my license, I transitioned back into the design world where I landed on the Sports and Recreation team at a large, multi-disciplinary firm. I’ve helped design facilities for public schools, private schools, Cities, Community Colleges, and Universities. I love being able to personalize each facility, based on their needs as well as the community at large.
