Sarah White is a landscape architect and an urban planner. Since she was a child growing up in suburban Minneapolis, she has felt a keen connection with “place,” and when in college she realized there was a whole profession that dealt with genius loci she was hooked. Since then she’s spent time building a career as a planner and landscape architect in Chicago (a city with genius loci to spare!). Sarah has a BS in Landscape Architecture from the University of Wisconsin at Madison (go Badgers!) and a MUPP from the University of Illinois at Chicago. She received her professional landscape architecture license in 2013 and has been a certified planner since 2012. Sarah currently works at the Chicago Park District as Lakefront Planning Coordinator, is mom to a super toddler, and is thriving on the excitement of living in and working to improve a city she loves.
