Nanette Heimes recently graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture. She was a very busy undergrad, working as a teaching assistant for a design studio in Quito, Ecuador; serving on the Student Advisory Board; and helping with a study-abroad service project in the Galapagos Islands. These experiences exposed her to the responsibilities that new landscapes have to society, becoming sources of pride and positively benefitting their communities, especially in developing countries. As she embarks on her professional career, Nanette is interested in translating the agricultural landscapes and systems of her youth into urban contexts.
In her spare time, Nanette has a passion for heights and climbing – anything that provides an unexpected view of landscapes.
