Rebecca Mizikar

Director of Design & Placemaking

Pronouns: she/her/hers
Rebecca Mizikar is a Registered Landscape Architect with more than 18 years of experience in community design and planning. Rebecca began working with Grounded Strategies as a consultant a few years ago. Her first projects were design/renderings for vacant lots and more recently Rebecca has been involved with larger projects including a vision plan for the St. John’s Green site in Brighton Heights and green infrastructure design for stormwater management.

Rebecca loves that the dress code here can be business or work boots on any given day. She spends equal time sketching with colored pencils on a community play park, composing a design package at the computer, and testing out design ideas with power tools back in our workshop – which makes it a dream job for Rebecca! …not to mention she enjoys working with a young and enthusiastic team of like-minded folks that are making a difference in local neighborhoods every day.

Rebecca loves live music, especially roots/Americana and recently acquired a mandolin.
