Favorite Project at HRG

By far, my favorite project has been SurveyLA. This multi-year historic resources survey for the City of Los Angeles has taken me to every corner of this tremendous city. As a local girl, it’s been a real treat getting to know parts of my own city that I’d never visited before, while also becoming better acquainted with my usual stomping grounds. SurveyLA has been the project of a lifetime, and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to participate in this survey from start to finish.
