I’m a recent graduate from the University of Arizona with a Master in Architecture who is excited to find her first official job in the architecture field.  Any architecture internship, architecture entry position, or an architecture related job would be awesome.  My interest in Architecture and Urban Planing has always been stimulated by big cities like San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Paris, and more.  That is why, I’m willing to go where I can experience architecture to the fullest from my place of work and from my environment.

You will see listed on my resume, my background in graphic design, photography, and architecture is extensive.  I am knowledgeable in many types of applications as well as the many concepts and criteria that the field requires.  I also have experience as a freelance graphic designer, web designer, and several years of customer service, which has given me the opportunity to develop good customer relations and communication skills.  My previous experience has taught me how hard work, dedication, and perseverance can help when completing a task or project.  For examples of my work, please visit my website at

I will welcome hard work, be willing to learn new skills, be mindful of details and stay on top everything, and lend a hand where is necessary.  I’m always eager on working on projects.  Also, I pride myself on my dependability and ability to work well with other.  I would appreciate an opportunity in an architecture field job.  Thank you for your time.
