Awesome Associates: Lian Plass (West Palm Beach)
Tell us a little bit about where you’re from and where you went to school: I was born in Washington, DC and raised in Miami. I got my BA at Columbia University and my MURP at the University of Florida.
What drew you to this profession? Planning is a profession with no limits. It evolves with humanity–with our social trends, environment, and technology. As planners, we have a profound capacity to utilize these developments to improve people’s quality of life. That’s the appeal.
What types of projects have you worked on? Grant writing/project facilitation, permitting, sustainability/resilience initiatives (tree planting, certification maintenance), site selection, community outreach for new development, economic development, developer PR, contaminated site remediation, and predictive modeling.
What do you like to do in your free time? Cycling, browsing the Internet, working on a research project, making art
What does your ideal vacation look like? Me, my bike, some camping gear, 100 miles of trail, and beautiful green landscapes.
What would be impossible for you to give up? Making art. It is a process that helps me think and sometimes it helps me communicate ideas that I can’t express with words.
Any interesting facts about yourself that you’d like to share? I know how to ride a unicycle! I have an irrational fear of love bugs (Plecia nearctica)
Who or what inspires you? Working with a team of people who are passionate about their projects, value their peers, and take pride in the quality of their work
Everyone at WGI has a story about why they joined the team. What’s yours? Every day that I am at WGI, I am able to help a team of amazing, passionate, and hard-working people to accomplish huge things. As you may know, I commuted from Miami over the summer during my internship while I worked on my thesis and took summer classes. The easiest part of those long days was walking into the office.
