As a lifelong lover of plants, the outdoors, and visual art Jill was attracted to the profession of landscape architecture. Growing up in rural Kaneohe allowed the freedom to experiment with tropical plants and building outdoor structures at an early age. Jill is passionate about inspiring an appreciation for the outdoors in all the projects she works on.
At HHF, she values the implementation of sustainable materials and Hawaiian native plants in her designs. She strives to continue building her skills in understanding the relationship between people, places, and plants. She is also intent on expanding her knowledge of sustainable and low maintenance design in order to reduce the impact of climate change in Hawaii.
Jill is an enthusiastic gardener herself and is ‘experimenting’ with growing her own lei and cut flower garden. She also grows and cures vanilla beans for her friends.
