Specializing in water sensitive urban design and low impact development, she has worked on projects across the United States and around the world including China, Canada, India, Chile and Australia. Within the larger framework of green infrastructure, her practice focuses on constructed wetland design for stormwater and wastewater treatment and stormwater management in the urban landscape. Ms. McWalter received her Master of Engineering at the University of Florida, Center for Wetlands, in 2000 and her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering at the University of Florida in 1998.
