Fortunately, Joy has lived in very beautiful environments since her birth. She grew up in Chengdu, within one of the top 10 beautiful campuses in China, where employees and their families would live. The university in which she resided has physical walls to separate it as a town within a big city. On the other side of the wall, the city had a famous historical park, the Wangjiang Park. The Wangjiang Park is rich with history and houses over 800 types of bamboo.
This environment was like living in a garden rich with knowledge, open minds, and fresh air. In addition, the city of Chengdu has 2,300 years of history. Chengdu is the only city in China that has maintained its name over years of change. It is famous for its rich culture, history, food, and the Panda Research Institute. After Joy came to United States, she resided in Blacksburg, VA, home of Virginia Tech. The Virginia Tech campus is beautiful, ranked within the top 20 in the United States, and Blacksburg has placed several times as one of the best living places in the United States.
This variety of rich and inspiring environments, especially the one in China, greatly influenced Joy‘s landscape design and her philosophy of healing with nature. She went to graduate School of Architecture + Design at Virginia Tech, which is one of top landscape architecture programs in United States.
