About 

      I am a fifth-year architecture student at Pratt Institute and will be graduating in May with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. Along with architecture, I am also doing a concentration in Morphology and a minor in Construction Management.   

    I have previously interned with Gensler and MidUrban Development. Throughout my academic career and through my internships, I have learned that I am a problem solver, a hard worker, and a go-getter. No matter what task is given to me, I accomplish it to the best of my ability. I always strive to give my best to any job, step comfortably into leadership positions and be part of a team to produce the best results. Several times my seniors and colleagues have asked me questions that I did not have answers to. I have never let that stop me in providing any help and arriving at a successful solution. I work together with the person to come up with a solution that best works for them. My work philosophy is to be understanding, always have a smile, and to never give up. Everyone has a rough day, and I want to be one less person to add to someone’s stress, instead I want help them through it.
