With a decade of experience in sunny subtropical Southwest Florida, ranging from complex construction management, to Botanical Garden Design our clients are surprised to learn Kristin’s career started over twenty years ago, with a shovel in hand in the coastal regions of Maine.   She holds degrees in both Landscape Architecture and Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design and balances her creative side with her grounded knowledge of the construction industry.  Through working closely with those who have maintained her designs she has gained expansive knowledge about the plant palette our region.  Kristin founded Metis Design in 2014 as a hands on, responsive, leading edge Landscape Architecture firm.  The firms design work has already been recognized at the CBIA Sandollar Awards as well as the Naples Park Shore Beautification Awards.

From her early days of working in coastal Maine as a landscape supervisor and laborer, Kristin knew the landscape industry was her place to expand and contribute.  Whether entrenched in the construction field, advancing her education or exercising her design skills, Kristin has dedicated over 20 years of her life to the profession of Landscape Architecture. She brings 12 years of experience in South Florida with an in-depth understanding of its unique characteristics, habitat and the balance of using native plants species along with suitable tropicals. Kristin brings an added touch to her designs by drawing on her Fine Arts degree to create unique, specific and desirable landscape solutions.
