After obtaining her degree, Mila joined Parker Rodriguez in 2006. She has participated in three 'Greening America’s Capitals' projects for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Frankfort, Kentucky, Lansing, Michigan, and Richmond, Virginia. She was the Project Manager for ‘Design for Resilience in Brattleboro’s Lower Whetstone Brook Corridor’ – a project in Brattleboro, Vermont completed for the U.S. EPA under ‘Making A Visible Difference in Communities’ program. This project won the 2017 Potomac Chapter ASLA Honor Award in Analysis and Planning and the 2018 Vermont Chapter ASLA Award of Excellence.
Mila brought her passion for creating artful landscapes of discovery and exploration to Moody Graham in 2017. She has always been intrigued by nature, its beauty, its power, and its irregular perfection. Mila is particularly interested in understanding how the changing dynamics of nature inform design that supports resilient landscapes, evoke dialogue, and promote human interaction.
Mila likes going on adventures and exploring the world through the lenses of her two wild and wonderful boys.
