Jamie is an Associate at CMG Landscape Architecture with eight years of experience. At a young age, through traveling with her soil scientist mother, Jamie began to comprehend natural ecosystems and landscapes. These early lessons became pillars for designing thoughtful, sustainable, and environmentally conscious landscapes, and eventually seeing them through construction and into fruition.
Her recent work on Yerba Buena Gardens — one of San Francisco’s major green spaces in the heart of the city — strives to create a welcoming front porch to the famous Moscone Center and larger SOMA community, providing engaging space for the advancement of green arts and education initiatives for all members of this socially connected community. Through ongoing community engagement, Jamie is working closely with stakeholders to help develop the cohesive vision for this exemplary community hub.
Jamie is an active member of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) and is part of CMG’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiative, where she helps advance conversations surrounding marginalized and underrepresented groups within the firm and the Landscape Architecture profession as a whole. Jamie holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Louisiana State University.
Situated in a rapidly evolving and liminal landscape, Meta Headquarters is a new contemporary workplace highlighting the importance of nature, culture, and place – bringing all aspects together to form a place for business. Over the last decade, the campus has evolved into a complex mosaic of social spaces, ecology, and infrastructure.
The transformative 500-acre redevelopment project creates a new San Francisco neighborhood – rejoining a former dilapidated military base back into the surrounding communities of Bay View. CMG added 40 acres of parks and public space through the Open Space Master Plan and the Streetscape Master Plan. The new neighborhood destination is home to Hillpoint Park, Hillside Central Park, Innes Court Park, as well as 16 pocket parks – designed as a series of distinct public spaces to accommodate community gardens, dining terraces, overlooks, and informal play areas, all with spectacular views.
Marin Country Day School
Nestled in a canyon formed by the ridges of Ring Mountain Nature Preserve, ecosystem restoration and academic ritual are the core of a K-8 school. For more than 15 years CMG has worked with Marin Country Day School to develop the 37-acre campus with special attention to the unique attributes of its environment and the school’s mission. Work began with a campus master plan and continued with its implementation. The story of water’s interaction with the valley encouraged CMG to explore several ideas in the subsequent design: rainwater harvesting, greywater reuse, stormwater infiltration, and native stream restoration.
