Jennifer Ivanovich

Associate Landscape Architect

Jennifer brings over 20 years of experience at a range of different scales--from a Berkeley backyard to the Beijing Olympics' site.  Her interests in landscape architecture bridge ecology, art, and ethnobotany.  Being first-generation Croatian American, Jennifer has a strong conviction that practicality in the landscape cultivates a positive human connection.  Edible and native plants are often found in her designs as a result.  Her work can be found in Regional Landscape Architecture: Northern California: Rooted in Resilience and The Beautiful Edible Garden. 

 

Jennifer grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago before moving to California to pursue a M.L.A. degree at the University of California-Berkeley.  She has an B.A. in Biological Aspects of Conservation and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is a licensed Landscape Architect in the State of California #6357.  Jennifer is fluent in English, Croatian and Spanish. 

 

Jennifer lives in Oakland with her family and 2 cats.  She spends much of her free time cooking and practicing martial arts.  Always ready for the next challenge, she has added roller skating and surfing to her skill set.
