visioning intern

Paola joins Genus entering her 4th year at Iowa State University. After moving from Puerto Rico with the goal of expanding her cultural and academic knowledge, Paola decided to pursue a degree in Landscape Architecture along with a minor in Political Science. While considering which area of the profession might best align with her interests, Paola landed an internship with Iowa State's Community Visioning Program. During this internship, her interests in community development and urban design grew, and she ultimately found her way to Genus where she will continue working with the Community Visioning Program throughout the summer. Her passion for design and love for her home country drive her pursuit of knowledge and fuel her desire to educate others at home about the benefits of landscape architecture.
