I am currently a fifth-year student studying at Syracuse University under the 5-year B.Arch program and am graduating in May 2022. I may not have been doing architecture for very long, but I have very quickly fallen in love with it and am fully invested in making it my full-time career.

Throughout my career, I’ve had many experiences in design, specifically at W.I.P (Work in Progress Women in Practice) and TMA (Ted Moudis and Associates). These internships among others have ranged from larger-scale corporate environments to smaller scale and even virtual settings. 

While I am still only a fourth-year student, my experience at these firms and of course also at Syracuse University means that I have been able to learn quickly and adapt to many situations as an Architect. 

Of course, I do not have my career mapped out, but what I do find important about Architecture is the impact on the community and even society it can have. Looking at how architecture is able to influence the users and make their lives better and easier is what I find fascinating about the field.
