About 

I have received my Bachelors in Interior Architecture from Woodbury University and my Masters in Architecture with a Certificate in Healthcare Systems and Design from Texas A&M University. 

My strengths lie in communication, planning, using evidence-based design to get the best outcome for facilities, its occupants and the community in which it’s located. My major focus is incorporating nature and innovative techniques in the projects that I design in order to enhance the human experience. I am passionate and motivated and am looking forward to challenging experiences which will allow me to continue to grow and incorporate my current knowledge in the work field.
