What interested you in pursuing architecture as a career?
My parents were big inspirations for me. My dad was in the construction industry and my mom is a very talented, creative, and crafty person. Their combination of passions and interests lead me through life with those interests. I was further drawn in after working on a project for school that involved drawing perspectives of skyscrapers. A guidance counselor at school encouraged me to pursue architecture and after starting college I realized that there really was no other career that I could see myself having! I love how many facets there are and how there’s always something new to learn and master.

What is your favorite type of project to work on? Why?
My favorite projects are always those with very engaged and excited clients. I spend a lot of time with each client while working on projects and have found that when a client is excited by the process and keen on the result it’s easier to collaborate and get their input for design work.

Do you have a favorite local nonprofit?
Dear NICU Mama, they have a very important mission and I love how they bring people together and form support groups.
