Miyo took what might be considered a less conventional path to landscape architecture, first learning the ins and outs of fabricating sculptures and working in the arts prior to taking the MLA plunge at UBC. Perhaps that’s where her soft-spoken nature and people skills were honed? Her diplomatic demeanour is offset by a wry sense of humour, though; much to the delight of her office colleagues.
In Miyo’s spare time she is frequently active and outdoors, whether exploring BC’s wild nooks, cycling, or maintaining her backyard garden. Her more sedentary weekend endeavours include cooking with friends, and picnics in the park.
