About Kelleann

Kelleann Foster is a proven leader in design and is regularly sought as an invited speaker at national and international design, planning, and technology-focused conferences. She is a registered landscape architect whose work is rooted in outreach that is interdisciplinary and forward-thinking. She is the director of the online geodesign graduate programs at Penn State, and a Professor in the Landscape Architecture Department. She has 35 years of professional practice experience as a landscape architect and 30 years of teaching at Penn State.
