Over the last six years, PSU has given me a wide range of experiences through the rich curriculum, as well as through my involvement with the AIAS. I also gained a lot of experience through my years in the military, and in working in avionics after receiving my Associates degree in Washington. As student IDP Coordinator the last two years at PSU, this position required knowledge of IDP, NAAB, NCARB, Paths to Licensure, and the ARE exam process. My current goals include finding permanent internship position with local architectural firm, and gaining as much experience as possible on my path to licensure. My journey has driven me to become very interested in the areas of Adaptive Reuse, Socially Responsible Architecture, and the role of the Architect in the psychology and science of building communities, and city planning.
