Senior Landscape Architect

About Regina

Regina is a Senior Landscape Architect based in the Portland office, responsible for managing and building MMI's landscape architecture practice and presence in Maine and providing support to the Cheshire and Northern New England offices. Her past and recent work is strongly based in municipal settings and encompasses conceptual-level design through project implementation. Over the years, she has forged strong alliances with officials, regulatory agencies, and neighborhood and advocacy groups to advance a variety of important civic-scale projects, including streetscapes, master plans, downtown revitalizations, educational and civic sites, open spaces, greenways and bikeways, trails, natural areas, and parks. After spending nearly 8 years in the landscape industry, Regina decided to pursue a degree in ornamental horticulture & design and soon discovered the field of landscape architecture. She most values that her work requires collaboration, critical thinking, and, most of all, creativity.
