Our programs evolve from member suggestions, and we have revamped the 2018 program line-up to better meet member needs. The Program Committee is organizing 4 ‘mini-Symposiums’. Each of these programs will be 4-6 hours in length, which will allow us to delve deeper into the subject matter. And, networking time, which is always integral to every program, is being expanded. We will continue to address issues related to professional growth, design exposure, national certification and business/legislative advocacy. Be sure to share your thoughts and ideas with the Program Committee!

Kryssie Maybay is the Landscape Architect for Sublime Garden Design based out of Snohomish, WA. Her career started in design-build firms, working on a very wide array of projects from large scale planning and commercial to custom water features around the country to residential. That experience provided a great exposure to all avenues of the field of landscape architecture and helped to determine that her passion was working with homeowners.
The thing that she enjoys above and beyond everything else is making clients happy. She enjoys challenging designs that demand focus and creativity to come up with the design. She has passion for not only plants but hardscapes, lighting, irrigation, structures, grading and drainage. Problem solving and the love of knowing how things work drive her creative design solutions.
Zsofia Pasztor is the owner of Innovative Landscape Technologies and founder/co-executive director of the non-profit organization, Farmer Frog. She teaches restoration horticulture, urban agriculture, aquaponics, and low impact development. She trains professionals about sustainable site management, smallscale integrated agriculture, community development and natural resource conservation.
She is an author of the book Rain Garden for the Pacific Northwest, an award-winning landscape designer, certified Blue Economy consultant, Caring Economy consultant, Low-Impact-Development (LID) designer and construction consultant, professional horticulturist, permaculture designer, Filtrexx designer, commercial urban agriculturist, tree risk assessor, and arborist.
