We are pleased to welcome Keely McDonald as a designer at Pashek+MTR. Keely is a recent graduate from the Masters of Landscape Architecture program at the University of Georgia. While completing her studies in Georgia she discovered a passion for public landscape projects. Her assistantship work took her all over the state to work on a wide variety of landscape projects from small town streetscape designs to public park master planning.
Keely previously earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Horticulture from Colorado State University with a concentration in Landscape Design and Contracting and Nursery and Landscape Management. Her background in horticulture and love of plants provides an invaluable knowledge on plant selections and care requirements. Keely’s prior experience in landscape management gives her a unique understanding of the day to day demands that come with various landscapes.
Since joining our team, Keely has been assisting with design work on projects for the Pennsylvania State University and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. When not at work Keely is enjoying exploring the neighborhoods in Pittsburgh in search of any and all tasty eats and relaxing outdoor spaces. In her free time, she enjoys relaxing with her cats, reading, photography, sketching, and painting.
