Wesley is an Associate at CMG Landscape Architecture with six years of experience. Growing up on the East Coast, Wesley realized her love of cities and design at a young age. With her passion of designing for people, whom she believes play an invaluable role in the spaces landscape architects create, Wesley considers how people will use a space and then designs solutions that offer a sense of flexibility and materiality with an attentiveness to detail.
Wesley brought expertise to CMG’s Mission Rock – a 27-acre missed use waterfront development project, by helping create a thorough public realm design concept for San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood. From the site’s historical traces of the past to the potentials of tomorrow, she drew creative inspiration from the site’s story.
Wesley holds multiple Student Honor Awards from the American Society of Landscape Architects in both Communications and Analysis & Planning. She has also been a Graduate Student Instructor at the University of California, Berkeley through the Summer Design Academy. Wesley holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from University of California, Berkeley, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture with Honors in Research Distinction from The Ohio State University.

Civic Center Public Space Design
Civic Center is at the heart of San Francisco’s democracy – a vital open space for the city’s highest-density neighborhoods and a national historic landmark. After decades of neglect and failed revitalization attempts, a new vision is developed through a community-based process bringing together 75 institutions and community groups, thousands of city residents and workers, and governmental stakeholders to reimagine what contemporary democratic public space could be.
Civic Center Community Outreach
The vision for Civic Center represents eighteen months of community and City stakeholder input. Founded upon engagement and analysis, the Plan includes concept alternatives and a preferred concept plan uniting Civic Center’s three public spaces: Civic Center Plaza, Fulton Mall and UN Plaza.
Working alongside the San Francisco Giants and the Port of San Francisco, CMG has developed a public realm design concept for this 27-acre mixed use waterfront redevelopment project in San Francisco’s Mission Bay. A network of distinct open spaces and lively, pedestrian-priority streets drive the design and the future neighborhood identity.
Port of San Francisco Waterfront Resilience Program
CMG is part of the team developing plans to reimagine and protect the waterfront from to two very different threats, the danger of earthquakes and the likelihood of sea level rise. Foundational to over three miles of urban waterfront stretching from Fisherman’s Wharf to Mission Creek is an aging seawall. The Seawall project supports historic piers, wharves and buildings as well as stabilizes filled lands containing critical city infrastructure and protects Bayfront neighborhoods from coastal flooding.
