Ms. Lewis has been educated as and has practiced as a fine artist and a landscape architect. In 1991, after ten years in large company corporate practice she opened a small consulting firm dedicated to artful, highly personalized site design.

Ms. Lewis' professional history is diverse. She was appointed by Governor Ashcroft to the Department of Natural Resources' Land Reclamation Commission which regulates surface mining and the Department of Economic Development's Landscape Architectural Council (professional registration board). She was elected by her colleagues to the chairmanship of both. Ms. Lewis is a past national Trustee of the American Society of Landscape Architects. She served from 1982 to 1995 in the reserves of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Disaster Assistance Program. For 4 years through 2004 Anne served on the Chesterfield Architectural Review Board.

Ms. Lewis moved to the Midwest in 1982 to join the Industrial Services Division of Hellmuth Obata and Kassabaum. Since that time she has purposely worked within civil engineering departments of A & E firms in order to develop the technical skills of site engineering to compliment her aesthetically driven sense of site planning.

Unique Experience:
In January of 1992, Ms. Lewis indulged a long term passion by purchasing 120 acres of pre-law abandoned coal surface mine near Columbia, Missouri. She has entered into a 10 year "Partners for Wildlife" contract with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Jointly, they have constructed earth dams and levees in order to impound eight additional acres of water and enhance habitat. All off beat, fringe, alternate technology research projects are welcome.
