Jamie Yousten is currently a fifth-year senior at LSU, majoring in landscape architecture and minoring in photography. This summer, she interned at Peter Walker and Partners Landscape Architecture Firm after spending the 2013 spring semester interning at the California State Parks Southern Service Center. These opportunities offered her a plethora of knowledge regarding the business, as well as the opportunity to work with many fantastic professionals on a variety of projects around the country.

Her research and professional interests focus on creating functional and beautiful public spaces by utilizing sites previously forgotten or less desirable, in particular with an emphasis on the confluence of brown field and contaminated site remediation and the interaction between the delicate natural ecosystems and the surrounding communities. Her volunteer work on coastal restoration efforts, including Marsh Madness, through both the LSU Honors College and other volunteer groups has also fostered an interest in sensitive habitat restoration and redesign in order to promote human education and minimize adverse interaction. Her senior thesis project will examine the mining industry and the byproducts created and stored in the surrounding landscape, highlighting their effects on the surrounding ecosystems and communities in order to design and establish a landscape to treat and adapt to these materials as they are created.

When not in school, she enjoys gardening and spending time in the local parks, hiking and canoeing, as well as going home to visit her family in Vermont.
