Katie Kovalchik


Director of Landscape Architecture


Katie is drawn to the field of landscape architecture because of its ability to restore, captivate and inspire. She contributes her proficiency in graphics, concept design, construction documentation, and community engagement to the EPD design process. Focused primarily on riverfront parks, she enjoys working on a variety of project types and scales, as well as collaborating with different clients and design teams. This approach enables her to meld her creative interests with her understanding of real-world construction processes and implementation. She enjoys exploring the unique neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, fly-fishing and spending time with her dog.
