  4. 4. b i o Jeremy C. Alexander, Landscape Architecture Graduate Jeremy C. Alexander is the newest member on board at Dwyer DesignScapes, joining the company in November of 2007. Jeremy received his Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture from the University of Kentucky in 2005. At an early age, his love of art and the natural environment initially interested him in Landscape Architecture, and for thirteen years he has been working towards establishing a name for himself in the field. His passion for plants and residential design was discovered early on during his education career, and continues to be the field he is most interested in. Jeremy worked through college at retail garden and landscape centers, acquiring knowledge on what homeowner’s want to see in their landscape, while also gaining excellent people skills. He then began to focus on design and implementation, managing multiple crews and meeting with clients. Mr. Alexander has a unique talent and interest in the graphic design department of the firm. He enjoys spending a great deal of time doing sketches and producing hand renderings for clients, helping with the marketing efforts, and establishing a successful web presence by initiating the work for the new website. Jeremy is a Louisville native and a member of the Young Professional Association of Louisville (YPAL) and the University of Kentucky Alumni Association. He plans to take the next step in his career by taking the Landscape Architecture Registration Exam (LARE) in the next two years to become a Certified Landscape Architect.

  44. 44. DETERMINATION AND PERSISTENCE a t t i t u d e
  45. 45. “ If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying, "Here comes number seventy-one! ”” -Richard M. Devos “ Touch passion when it comes your way...It’s rare enough as it is…“ -J. Michael Straczynski “Attitude, to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill……The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
