Amy Morie, ASLA, discovered Landscape Architecture as the perfect intersection of her interests in art, nature, science, and education.
A Florida native from West Palm Beach, as an undergrad Amy followed a unique opportunity to simultaneously learn academic and practical sides of residential, commercial, institutional, and civic projects. Working as a consultant for Mia Lehrer and Associates and attending USC, during this time she developed a passion for public space projects. In grad school she began partnering with underserved populations and NGOs to develop projects with local stakeholders, including extensive work with NFP Amigos de los Rios to engage local communities in planning and developing park and trail networks along the San Gabriel and Rio Hondo Rivers. Amy further refined her design, horticultural, and project management skills as an associate with Mark Beall + Associates.
Amy currently is serving on the Conference Committee for the Jacksonville/Daytona FLASLA chapter. She is pursuing her Florida LA license and actively volunteers in the community with Florida Master Gardeners, Florida Master Naturalists, Florida Fish and Wildlife, and Florida 4-H.
Amy earned her BLA cum laude from the University of Southern California (2007) and MLA magna cum laude from the University of Florida (2009).
