By understanding, and then prioritizing, clients and their needs, they ensure that RGS delivers timely, efficient and quality service that exceeds expectations.

Along with the accomplishment of becoming a Registered Landscape Architect, Adam was promoted to Senior Project Landscape Architect.

Katie’s promotion to Project Landscape Architect comes after earning the title of Registered Landscape Architect and developing a broad skill set during her three years with RGS. She excels at developing site layout and grading solutions and producing project renderings. Traveling, spending time with her dogs, trying new recipes, and watching movies are just a few ways that Katie enjoys spending her free time.
