Dena Kennett is a leader and senior project manager in the landscape architecture group at H. T. Harvey & Associates. She is a creative thinker and problem solver with private, public, and non-profit sector experience. This experience has allowed her to develop a multi-disciplinary and systems-based approach to landscape architecture. She has a proven track record of managing multiple interdisciplinary teams and successfully delivering diverse, complex and often highly-visible public projects. She strongly believes that spaces where nature and people coexist are best designed and achieved through collaboration across disciplines using inclusionary and equitable practices.

Dena’s work focuses on projects where natural and cultural resources are often highly integrated. Her portfolio includes urban parks, cultural sites, monuments and memorials, streetscapes, and some of the most highly visited sites in the National Park Service. She has overseen the development of master plans, conceptual design, detailed site plans, feasibility studies, visual resource assessments, circulation studies, design guidelines, technical manuals, and trail and bike plans. In addition to design and planning work, she has experience establishing and maintaining liaisons and effective partnerships with local and national agencies and allied non-profit organizations, coordinating projects with regulatory agencies and stakeholders, and developing funding strategies.
