Claire Eddleman-Heath brings her passion for beautiful and performative landscapes to each project. As a licensed landscape architect, LEED AP BD+C and SITES AP, Claire has and continues to manage a variety of complex projects at a broad range of scales. With each project, Claire aims to integrate design and landscape systems-thinking in order to improve the environment for all.

Claire also manages a two-mile urban roadway realignment featuring green infrastructure solutions for on-site stormwater challenges.
