Growing up in one of the densest metropolitan areas in the world, Lanshing dreamed of being a cowboy. The sharp contrast of systems has stayed with her ever since. While studying horticulture and breeding tissue cultures in college, the wonder of arts and curiosity about design of the environment began to take hold. Lanshing maintained broad interests in many fields and therefore landscape architecture became the most logical goal to pursue. The varied nature of involvement and unpredictability of project types fulfilled her innate desire to tame the unknown. In her designs, Lanshing tries to bring out the wholesome, the forever optimistic, and honest nature of all projects.
