Currently she and her team are working on a 23-acre mixed-use development in Rockville, Maryland, where they are completing streetscape and park designs, major public fountains and play spaces, and extensive public art installations.

Ms. Clinton lectures frequently on design and the use of plants in designed landscapes, and has taught and lectured extensively at George Washington University, Catholic University, The University of Maryland, The National Arboretum, the New York Botanic Garden, the Chicago Botanic Garden, and the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
