Brenda Williams, ASLA


Brenda Williams provides invaluable expertise to QEA based on more than two decades of experience as a landscape architect. In addition to extensive project experience with the National Park Service (NPS), she has managed a variety of civic projects, from master planning and conceptual development through project implementation.

During her career, she has focused on the preservation of historic landscapes, particularly those in the public arena, including her tenure as a historical landscape architect with the NPS Midwest Regional Office. “I’m a great admirer of the work done under Thomas Vint by the NPS Western Field Office in the early 1930s,” she notes. “He addressed planning and design for NPS landscapes holistically, based on the principles of landscape preservation and harmonious design.”
