Krista Leahy

After graduating from the University of Vermont where she studied urban geography Krista packed up, left the Green Mountain State and set-up camp in Brooklyn to pursue her love for cities, museums, and architecture. Her interest in sustainability + design brought her to the Pratt Institute where she is currently a graduate candidate in city + regional planning, focusing on physical planning and design. Greatly influenced by the culture in Burlington, Vermont, Krista is an avid recycler that really loves root vegetables and has a strong passion for radical theory that contributes to a better informed planet. After her studies she hopes to contribute to the planning field with research on design systems that manage and treat stormwater in order to help support healthier communities.
