Stephanie Tartan has been a member of the CUSP team since July 2016, beginning her career as a Landscape Architect with the Parks and Recreation Planning team at Moreton Bay Regional Council. Stephanie was nominated for the 2016 Karl Langer Award for her QUT final honours year research and design project for a healing garden for the Palliative Care Ward at Redcliffe Hospital. Stephanie is interested in how landscape design can holistically improve health and quality of life by creating places that support individuals and communities socially, mentally, physically and spiritually.
For the past two years Stephanie has been working closely alongside Senior Landscape Architect John Murray on Stockland Developments Newport Residential Community. To date, they have delivered vibrant parks and recreation spaces, revegetated a water management corridor and created walkable streetscapes to support thriving, healthy communities.
