Melissa Eloshway navigated her way into the field of landscape architecture through an internship with the Olmsted Center for Landscape Preservation after finishing her Historic Preservation degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Her passion for preservation planning combined with her lifetime love of design, exploring nature, and gardening fueled her decision to begin molding herself into a landscape architect. As a staunch advocate for the consideration of historic and existing cultural landscapes throughout the planning and design process, Melissa believes that not only placemaking, but also placekeeping can be achieved, providing a sustainable and relatableenvironment. Melissa spends her spare time finding the best doughnut shops in every Boston neighborhood, swimming, knitting, and getting as many stamps as possible in her National Parks passport.
