Heather - I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you I love your posts - they give me hope!  I am a first year BLA at University of Washington - somewhat in your neck of the woods. I am pursuing this degree, my second, after 25 years in the workforce (I am one of two "token boomers" in my class).  Reading about the design-build business you have built is inspiring and, quite frankly, my dream as well.  Keep up the good work and know that you have a fan here in Lakewood, WA (south of Tacoma) that is rooting for you!

Hi there Heather!

I'm Sam, and I am currently a summer student enrolled in a Landscape Architecture class at the University of Maryland. I am very interested in the profession. 

For a class project, I am using Land8Lounge as a place to ask landscape architect professionals and students from around the world a few questions about their field.

So if you are at all interested in participating, then feel free to write me back. 

Thanks!!

Hhhaha! Thanks for the encouragement! I find it totally bewildering that i made the original post hoping to hear from other women about their experiences and so far 90% of the comments have been angry scowling responses from....men ;) Where are the ladies??
