Madeline has always had a deep love for Tucson, her hometown, and a special affinity for the Santa Cruz River. She completed a B.S. in Natural Resources in 2014 and an M.S. in Water, Society, and Policy in 2017, both at the University of Arizona, and worked directly with WMG in developing the River Run Network as part of her graduate project. She is excited to be part of creating a way for people in urban spaces to know, co-exist with, and restore their watersheds. In her off time, you'll probably find Madeline biking around town with her pup, exploring nearby mountain ranges, or trying out new recipes with friends.
Madeline's design philosophy is grounded in empowering and encouraging people to feel more at home in their outdoor spaces. She focuses on helping to uncover underlying needs or wants that will bring people outdoors more often and root people in a sense of place and belonging. Her designs are influenced by a background in design implementation and maintenance of existing landscapes, and she incorporates rainwater harvesting and permaculture principles in every design.
