Role at SPVV Landscape Architects
Specializing in sustainable design, Gina brings 5 years of experience to SPVV. She has been a LEED AP since 2008 and has worked on dozens of sustainable and LEED projects throughout the Inland Northwest. Gina is the go-to gal for the office graphics and even dabbles a little in the office marketing. Best of all, she’s an amazing drafter and project manager— keeping her projects in-line and on-time! They also look pretty good too.

Why I Work Here
In 2007, fresh out of college, I landed a job at SPVV. Quite frankly, I was lucky. Most of my peers struggled to find design jobs or were soon laid off due to the failing economy. I quickly discovered how tight-knit the office was. We all have a special skill set that we bring to the table that makes each of us a vital component to our successful little firm; we’re like family! After much growth as a designer/project manager/graphic designer/amateur marketing specialist, I left the firm to move to Japan with my husband. Three years and one baby later, I’m back and so happy to be a part of the SPVV office family, once again!

Education
