The Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) is pleased to welcome Hannah Hethmon, who joined the organization December 11 as Communications Manager. Hannah will leverage marketing, communications, and public relations to build community and propel the landscape architecture discipline forward while supporting LAF programs, events, and fundraising efforts.

Hannah has had a varied career across communications and marketing. For the last five years, she ran her own business, Better Lemon Creative Audio, producing podcasts for cultural nonprofits in the US and UK like the Smithsonian Institution and The National Archives (UK). Prior to that, she completed a Fulbright Fellowship in Iceland and served as the Membership Marketing Coordinator for the American Association for State and Local History, a public history nonprofit based in Nashville, TN. She currently serves as a board member of the Friends of Maryland Olmsted Parks and Landscapes.

Hannah holds a BA in English Literature from the University of Maryland, College Park, and an MA in Viking and Medieval Norse Studies from the University of Iceland. Her passion for green, equitable urban spaces is informed by her travels and her experiences living in London, Warsaw, Copenhagen, and Reykjavik. Hannah dedicates most of her spare time to her vegetable gardens and her work as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for youth in foster care, but she also loves visiting art museums, parks, and local history sites.

We are excited to welcome Hannah to the team!
