About 

I joined Heilter Houston Architect (HHA) as an Architectural Designer after receiving her Master of Architecture and Master of Urban Design degrees with Honors from Washington University of St. Louis in December 2018. At HHA, Danielle is also the Business Development and Marketing Leader. She is currently a member of the Torch Mentorship Program AIA Emerging New York Architects. While at Washington University, she served as a Graduate Research Assistant on the publication titled “Segregation by Design” sponsored by The Divided City: An Urban Humanities Initiative funded by the Mellon Foundation. This has been on display at Creative Exchange Lab, St. Louis History Museum and Washington University. Danielle was also a Graduate Teaching Assistant for multiple courses. She was awarded the 2018 Architecture Degree Project Book Award upon her graduation. Danielle is a highly motivated and responsible individual with strong creative and problem-solving skills in multi-scalar, place-based and human-centric design. She is able to work individually and collaboratively to gain new knowledge and skills in the field.
