The California sunshine and an interest in landscape architecture drew Larissa to the Central Coast from her home state of Ohio. After earning her degree in Landscape Architecture from Cal Poly SLO, she joined Ground Studio’s Napa office in 2020. Her minor in sustainable environments and interest in habitat restoration align well with Ground Studio’s extensive work in California’s native landscapes.
Larissa brings with her experiences working in the landscapes of Ohio, Colorado, and Central California, enriching her awareness of regional biodiversity and distinct microclimates. Her adventurous spirit and avid eye for aesthetics is reflected in her design work.
