the People

Lani Phan | Landscape Technician


I have truly enjoyed my 20-plus year career working for three different Landscape Architecture firms. At The LA Studio I get to work on urban mixed-use, housing, hospitality, parks, commercial and new community planning projects. I feel my most important skills are with the computer. I enjoy preparing high quality, well organized construction documents using my AutoCAD experience. I also get to use Photoshop, In-Design, Illustrator and Sketch-up to prepare presentation exhibits for design review boards, community groups and public agencies. I really enjoy our pro-bono projects. At the community meetings I get to hear people’s comments, interests and concerns first-hand.

My personal life centers around my husband Marc and out two children Max and Andrea. We all participate in the regular activities of our church, and I really like singing in the church choir. I also enjoy spending time in our yard and our garden.
