Elizabeth Reardon, PLA, ASLA
Liz has an up close and personal understanding of the ephemeral nature and powerful force of water in New Mexico’s landscape. She has spent many years working on watershed management with her husband at the family ranch in northeast New Mexico. That plus her unwavering commitment to getting everything right on her projects from the composition of her sweeping planting arrangements to her meticulous coordination of schedule and budget makes her one tough cookie in the eyes of all of us here at MRWM.
Liz joined the firm in 1981 and it wasn’t long before she became partner and the firm changed its name to Morrow and Reardon. She has had an invaluable role in growing MRWM into the design practice it is today. She leads a variety of project types from master planning, to parks, and streetscapes, to campus design and historical renovation. Liz uses her extraordinary project management skills to create innovative projects that maintain a high level of technical accuracy through construction documents. And she does it all while providing a fun and supportive work atmosphere for MRWM’s talented staff. Through her work on a wide variety of projects, Liz continues to address the tough challenges that water and the lack thereof bring to New Mexico, from the subtle manipulation of the natural landscape to the elegant design of urban landscapes.
