Camila moved from her native El Salvador to the United States to complete architecture studies. She worked as an architectural designer in Chicago until the allure of warmer weather prompted her to move to Miami. She is grateful to have had the opportunity to join the creative and vibrant team at Plusurbia and begin her career as an urban planner.
Since joining Plusurbia, Camila served on the team that produced the award-winning West Coconut Grove Affordable Housing Blueprint and Little Havana Revitalization Plan. She manages ongoing planning and zoning consulting services for the Village of El Portal and has also assisted with the research and completion of historic preservation survey and designation reports.
It is no surprise that the world is facing a climate crisis, which if not met with the right preparedness, could very well create additional crises, the worst of which is a deteriorating collective human health. As planners, we need to be able to provide the right tools to cities to be prepared to face these challenges. Having recently pursued studies in Urban Sustainability and Resilience, Camila looks forward to aiding with mitigation and adaptation to the current and future challenges that our communities face.
