Darlene has worked for the past 13 years designing landscapes in Canada and in the U.S. She has worked on a range of projects that vary in intricacy and scale, as well as time. Projects that she has designed range in size from a 50-mile long bioremediation project in Riyadh; to a rooftop children’s garden for the YMCA; to a post-Sandy resiliency study for buildings along Water Street in Manhattan. All of the projects evaluate natural and sociological systems and project ways of navigating into future decades.
 
Several of her projects have won prestigious awards including two 2014 New York ASLA Awards for the Master Plan of Hudson Square and the design of West Point Foundry Preserve where she served as the prime designer / project manager, with large teams of specialized consultants.
 
After completing a BLA at the University of Toronto in 2001, Darlene returned to Daniels School of Architecture, Landscape and Design in 2013, to complete a post-professional MLA as a way to further her research and understanding of the profession.
