Lake has a BA in Urban Studies and Planning from UCSD and a masters in Landscape Architecture from North Carolina State University. She has worked at LandDesign in Alexandria, VA; the County of Arlington, Arlington, VA; the City of San Diego; the Centre City Development Corporation (CCDC, now Civic San Diego), and Latitude 33 in San Diego.
