Based in Maine, Emily Paskewicz joined the East Coast Greenway Alliance earlier this month as its Northern New England Manager, covering Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
In this role, Paskewicz carries region-wide responsibilities for all aspects of Greenway development, advocacy and state committee and volunteer engagement. She supports communities along the route as they plan, build and maintain sections of the Greenway.
“I’m excited to join a passionate and knowledgeable team working to connect the East Coast in a safe and equitable manner,” Paskewicz says. “In particular, I’m looking forward to working closely with communities throughout northern New England to ensure that the Greenway provides a local sense of place and pride along with national connections.”
“Emily brings deep knowledge supporting communities in Pennsylvania with local community engagement, trail planning and design, and I'm excited she'll be sharing these skills to support trail development in New England,” says Allison Burson, the Alliance’s National Greenway Director.
Before relocating to Maine, Paskewicz most recently worked with Gilmore & Associates, Inc., in New Britain, Pennsylvania, serving as the appointed landscape architect for two Pennsylvania municipalities from late 2022-23. She managed and executed master planning projects; trail feasibility studies; land use studies; and comprehensive park, recreation, open space, greenway and trail plans. Paskewicz also designed and executed park, trail, civic and open space projects, also while preparing GIS maps and analyses. She also played a key role in navigating the intricacies of a trail right-of-way along a utility easement.
From 2015-20, Paskewicz worked as a planner and landscape architect in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, where she planned, designed and executed a variety of park, open space, recreation and commercial planning projects.
A licensed landscape architect, Paskewicz holds bachelor’s degrees in landscape architecture and geography, as well as a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) minor, from Pennsylvania State University.
She has served as a leadership team member with the ASLA Parks & Recreation Professional Practice Network, as well as a mentor in the Penn State Landscape Architecture Mentorship Program.
