creative director

An artist at heart, Haleigh hopes to bring her passion and enthusiasm for art and design to her role as Creative Director at Genus Landscape Architects. Haleigh received a BFA in Integrated Studio Arts from Iowa State University, where she studied a multitude of artistic disciplines. These include, but are not limited to drawing/illustration, painting, textiles, printmaking, woodworking, and photography. She understands the value of creating one-of-a-kind, thoughtful works of art that reflect the needs of clients and the spaces in which they work and live.

As Creative Director, Haleigh works within the realms of marketing, networking, and graphic design to help the company expand their presence throughout the midwest region. She intends to utilize her photography experience by becoming a certified drone pilot for the company. Outside of Genus, Haleigh works independently in the Des Moines metro area as a custom painter and recently exhibited her work at the Des Moines Arts Festival 2022. She is excited to be a part of the team and is eager to learn new design processes while working at the firm.
