Education

Dip LA; Bachelor of Sociology

Beth is the Director of Greenways, Parks, and Open Space and is an advocate for public and private investment in attainable green infrastructure. She believes the open space experience should begin the moment you step outside with a network of multi-modal streetscapes, neighborhood parks, and recreational amenities all within walking, biking, or e-scootering distance. Combining her background in sociology and landscape architecture, Beth strives to capture the spirit of a community to influence the vision for an authentic open space experience that aligns with the local goals and values. Public open space is her thing—parks, trails, streetscapes, pedestrians, bikes, and even trikes.
