Staff Scientist/Landscape Designer
Kellie Knight has joined our Sandwich office as a Biologist and Landscape Designer. She is joining a busy ecological restoration team where she will be assisting with wetland delineations, habitat/ecological assessments, landscape design, and permitting.
Kellie gained experience in ecological design working as an Associate Restoration Designer and an Environmental & Nursery Technician for a small ecological design firm located on Cape Cod. Her work in the New England /Maryland areas includes an Earth Stewardship Fellowship Initiative, natural history study of box turtles, and a bird count study.
She earned a Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) from the Rhode Island School of Design and a B.S. in Wildlife Conservation Biology with a minor in Animal Science, from the University of Rhode Island. She studied abroad in South Africa through Duke University as part of the Organization of Tropical Studies which sparked her interest in environmental science.
