Matt Lincolnhol received his Professional Landscape Architect license, while Assistant Project Manager and Project Engineer Stephen VerVaecke received his Professional Engineer license.
A member of the team since 2018, Lincolnhol has been actively involved with the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) since his collegiate days at Clemson University, where he served as president of the student chapter. Presently he is serving as the Southwest Florida section chair for ASLA, where he is responsible for hosting educational events, promoting ASLA through community outreach efforts, and fostering professional connections for Landscape Architects throughout Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties.
