About 

I have been focused on designing meaningful spaces for use and enjoyment throughout my educational and professional career.  Earning my Bachelor of Science in interior design degree first taught me the importance of designing experientially, or for how and why people use space.  While pursuing my Master of Architecture degree, I was able to apply this appreciation and design thinking to a larger scale with a more nuanced understanding of construction and detailing.  Almost 2 years of professional work experience earned during the pursuit of my graduate degree has given me the tangible knowledge of human-centered design in the real-world.
