She has led and designed projects ranging from parks to corporate campuses and sports venues to children’s gardens.

Charlotte is the Executive Projects Director at The Trail Conservancy and leads all the capital and infrastructure work on the 10-mile Butler Trail in downtown Austin around Lady Bird Lake including park spaces, trail-wide plans, exercise stations, overlooks, and award-winning restrooms.
