Maggie Leonard, Treasurer
As the principal of Paradise City Landscape Design, Maggie Leonard has worked with landscaping clients for over 10 years in Western Massachusetts and Connecticut. Maggie received a Master’s in Landscape Architecture from the University of Massachusetts in 2008, where she is a regular guest instructor in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning.
A Smith College graduate, Maggie previously worked as director of software development and product management at HBO & Company for 12 years, “retiring” in 1993 to raise her family of two girls. She has found the Valley a stimulating and wonderful place to live and raise her family, and has been a resident of Northampton for over 30 years.
From time to time, she also teaches tutorials and intensives to school-aged children, introducing them to the fun and creativity of landscape design. Maggie continues to live in Northampton, where she enjoys many hobbies, including trout fishing, cooking, hiking, second-guessing her teenage daughters, and reminding her dog she is just a dog.
Who We Are
” Many of the children I work with have never felt success, and you make them feel safe and empowered.”
