LAF Staff Changes

kathlinda2Program powwow: Katharine and Linda

Linda Ashby, ASLA will be leaving LAF at the end of the month, after 2.5 years with the organization. She began working on the Landscape Performance Series and various communication efforts, before taking on her primary role as manager of LAF’s Case Study Investigation (CSI) initiative. Linda was instrumental in the development of CSI and in taking it from concept to pilot to the signature program that it is today.  We are delighted that she will continue to stay involved as a member of the LAF Research Committee. We wish her all the best as she and her family relocate to the Seattle area and she looks for her next opportunity.

While we will miss Linda’s energy, we are pleased to announce that Katharine Burgess, AICP is already on board to manage the CSI program, bringing expertise in urban planning, research, and writing and an international perspective on landscape performance. Katharine joins LAF after seven years in private practice, where she managed projects ranging from university campus plans to large-scale, mixed-use developments to recovery planning charrettes on the post-Katrina Gulf Coast. Welcome Katharine!

    Linda, we will certainly miss your wonderful smiles, positive outlook and your ability to always stay on top of the many processes and programs that you've helped develop. Best of luck; we are losing one heck-of-a wonderful, talented woman!!

    It has been an absolute joy working with everyone at LAF – the Board of Directors, the Research Committee, all of the dedicated and inspiring CSI participants, and of course this amazing staff. It has been an experience like none other, and a job that I will truly miss. I'm excited to head west to Seattle and discover all the opportunities that await, but I will always cherish my time with LAF. With warmest regards – Linda
