About 

Hello!

I am a graduate student in the School of Architecture + Planning at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. This spring is my final semester; I am finishing my thesis and actively searching for an entry-level position as an architectural designer.

I love Indian food, Impressionism, dogs, and architecture! My family lives in Carlisle, PA - home of the best pretzels and cheesesteaks yet discovered... we enjoy hiking, cooking, and - of course! - spending time with each other.

Manipal Technologies, Ltd., Manipal, IN, Technology Consultant

I served as an IT consultant for a large conglomerate firm in Manipal, India. My partner and I analyzed current operating systems for efficiency and proposed changes for greater system integration. At the end of the summer, we presented our work to the Managing Director of the company and a team of executives.

Living in India demanded positivity, adaptability, and abiding curiosity. Because this project was largely unsupervised, our work required a great deal of diligence and initiative.
