Phyllis  Boyd

Before becoming the Executive Director of Groundwork Indy in August 2015, Phyllis was a landscape architect and urban designer focused on sustainable design and planning and dedicated to working with diverse communities to transform their built environments into meaningful, relevant, and life-enhancing places.  After eight years in the field, she decided to transfer her skills and passion for working on community-oriented revitalization projects to the non-profit sector and joined Groundwork Indy.  Phyllis is also an artist and co-collaborator on the House Poem Project, which will transform the blight of vacant and abandoned homes into public art and economic opportunities for communities.  Phyllis holds a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Indiana University in Bloomington and is a two-time alumna of The University of Texas at Austin where she received her Masters of Arts in Botany in 1997 and her Masters of Landscape Architecture in 2006.
