Joni Emmons


As a Designer for CPEX, Joni provides design and planning services for a variety of CPEX projects. Joni brings to the CPEX team interests in land conservation, interpretation of cultural landscapes, and public space design as an instrument of community revitalization. Prior to joining CPEX, Joni gained experience in both the public and private sectors. She worked as a Designer and Planner at Design Workshop in Austin, TX and completed internships with the National Park Service and the Cultural Landscape Foundation. She has also held leadership roles within the American Society of Landscape Architects.


An Acadiana native, Joni holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and Philosophy, and a Master of Landscape Architecture from Louisiana State University. A continued interest in narrative informs her approach to landscape design. When she’s not in the office, you can find Joni staring at plants on long walks around town, experimenting in the kitchen, or exploring the small towns of South Louisiana.
