Alum of the Month: Heather Lappe, Wright Outdoor Solutions

Heather Lappe graduated in Horticulture in December 2016.  Heather is from Marion, Iowa.

Heather’s major job responsibilities are:  Working as a design associate.  Heather’s responsibilities include measuring sites, putting together basemaps and designs, shadowing designers, working on/with crews, and any other learning opportunities that arise.

We asked Heather what she likes most about her position.  I love that in my position I spend my time doing so many different things.  Some days I spend my entire day outside jumping from site to site.  Other days I work directly with the designers on staff learning.  Some days I spend with crews doing installs.

Following is the advice Heather offers to current students:  If there is a class that sounds interesting take it!  You never know when the additional knowledge will come in handy.
