ASLA President-elect Emily O'Mahoney, FASLA

Emily O’Mahoney, FASLA, has been elected 2021-2022 president-elect by ASLA Full/Fellow, Associate, and International members. She will be sworn in as president-elect at the 2021 Conference on Landscape Architecture this fall and as president at the 2022 meeting in Seattle.

For the last 20 years, Ms. O’Mahoney has been a partner at 2GHO in Jupiter, Florida, planning and designing award winning and sustainable spaces, places, and communities. Emily’s work on the local level is notable. As an activist, advocate, and passionate landscape architect, she has used her leadership positions to develop quality continuing education programs, remove barriers to practice, mentor students, and provide encouragement and support to emerging professionals with the LARE Review Course.

She is also actively involved in ACE Mentorship, ACE Legacy, and Future Landscape Architects of America (FLAA) to support career discovery. The growth of the profession fuels her commitment to serve aspiring landscape architects and emerging professionals. With all her work, Emily has been engaged in activities that give value to membership. Emily received her BLA from the University of Florida. She and her husband Brian raised three wonderful children and are blessed with five grandchildren and her daily walking partner, one crazy golden retriever.

“I am excited to have been elected to serve, especially in these times of great change. During the next few years I look forward to seeing ASLA move from the cusp of excellence to excellence and beyond,” says O’Mahoney.
