Sophie joined Ground Studio in 2020. She holds a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from University of Washington and a Bachelor of Environmental Science degree from University of Santa Cruz. Growing up in California wine country, she nurtured an early resonance for plants, people, and places, which led her to pursue a career in urban landscape design throughout Chicago, the Bay Area, and Seattle. Returning to wine country to put roots down, she is happy to be expanding her career in landscape architecture with Ground Studio, and is looking forward to growing within a team that honors artful, high craft placemaking.
