Carisa McMullen was appointed to the Board in July 2015. Carisa graduated from Kansas State University in 1993 and began her career as a public servant working for the City of Wichita Park and Recreation Department. Leaving this position in 1997 to gain experience with newer design technologies, Carisa worked for private engineering and architecture firms until she started her business in the fall of 2000.
Carisa decided early on in her career that starting her own business was the only way to maintain complete control over her design ambitions. Although she’s pleased to be among the “Certified Women-owned Businesses” in several regional markets, Carisa takes tremendous pride in the primary drivers of Landworks Studio’s achievements; an impressive portfolio of successfully completed projects and the delighted loyal clients behind them.
In over twenty-two years of practicing Landscape Architecture, Carisa McMullen has always chosen the road less travelled. Carisa’s competitive spirit drives her to face every challenge head on. As the Owner and Principal of Landworks Studio, this ‘can-do’ attitude has defined her professional ambitions, shaped her firm, molded her staff and produced a body of work that has enhanced the lives and experiences of countless people.
Thrilled to advocate for the practice of landscape architecture in this role for the State of Kansas, Carisa is looking forward to her four year appointment.
Mrs. McMullen's Board term expires June 30, 2019.
