Collaboration continues to contribute to her current studio practice. During 2015, she collaborated with the Urban Design Studio in Landscape Architecture & Environmental Planning at Utah State University, integrating the arts into the conceptual phasing plans for the industrial center of the Boise Bench District in Idaho.
