About 

Being born and raised  on Hilton Head Island, SC I attended boarding school at the Asheville School in Asheville, NC for my high school education. I graduated from the Tulane University School of Archtiecture where I earned my Master and Bachelor of Architecture along with Minors in Art History and Urban Design.

Spending my '08, '09, and '10 summers working with SYNCinc Design | Build firm in Vienna, Austria, I was able to  work on rooftop design projects. Before my '09 internship in Vienna, I was working for the New Orleans Museum of Art to make a design proposal for the creation of a new educational center. I spent my fall '09 semester studying and living in Rome.

Currently still living in New Orleans, I am working for Lee Ledbetter & Associates and have had an incredibly good experience working with the firm. Lee Ledbetter and Associates has prepared me to align myself with firms of infinite capabilities in competitive environments both domestically and internationally.

I was also required to make building code drawings to submit to the Ministry of Building in Vienna.
