Meg is a co-founder and principal of SKA with 30+ years managing a successful planning and design practice. Meg's first professional position was in a landscape architecture studio engaged in public sector work in her home state of Vermont. That was followed by Professional Certification as a Landscape Architect in Rhode Island while working for a Providence engineering firm, honing her technical scales.
Meg then joined The Landplan Partnership in Southport, Connecticut, and its successor firm Jack Curtis & Associates. Meg was project manager for site development for the new Cummins Engine Company headquarters in Columbus, Indiana, and stayed there after project completion to co-found Storrow Kinsella Associates with John Kinsella, Architect Representative for the Cummins project. After ten years in Columbus, they relocated their practice to Indianapolis to become part of that awakening city's innovation sector.
A graduate of Michigan State University with Honors in Landscape Architecture, Meg has been visiting professor, and design critic at Ball State and Purdue Universities. She served as president of the Indiana Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, and was appointed by Governor Bayh to serve ten years on the Indiana State Board of Registration for Architects and Landscape Architects and the National Council of Landscape Architecture Registration Boards (CLARB).
Meg has often volunteered her landscape architectural expertise to help communities preserve and protect what is meaningful to them. Her service has positively affected a wide range of people and professions in a variety of ways:
- Her forest and watershed preservation work in Columbus, Indiana educated her neighbors and the city about the value of stewardship in land use planning decisions.
- Her role in passage of the Indiana Landscape Architecture licensure act convinced allied professionals of the importance of landscape architects in multi-disciplinary projects and advanced landscape architects’ professional standards statewide.
- Her neighborhood advocacy in Indianapolis has contributed to the Mass Ave Cultural District being one of the most vibrant areas of the city. As a volunteer she chaired the committee that wrote the historic preservation plan for the Mass Ave commercial area and has participated in many beautification and planning efforts.
Her activism and advocacy includes numerable presentations on the value of landscape architecture to neighborhoods and downtown development committees, as well as playful activities that raised awareness of landscape and landscape architecture. In 2017, Meg chaired the "What's Out There Weekend Indianapolis" for The Cultural Landscape Foundation based in Washington, D.C. Along with David Gorden, ASLA Indiana Trustee, Vice Chair, their committee assisted TCLF with the development of an online database of significant landscapes, a printed and lavishly illustrated guidebook and the organization and production of two days of free tours of Indianapolis' parks, gardens, estates, cultural venues, and open spaces. Twenty seven tours were developed, led by experts in history and landscape design, attracting over 1,000 registrants.
Meg's is current chair of the Cultural Landscapes Committee of Indiana Landmarks, and vice-president of the Mass Ave Merchants Association.
