As a Junior Architectural Designer at Stephen Tilly, Architect (Dobbs Ferry, NY), I worked on sustainable historic preservation and high-end residential projects in the New York/Tri-state area. At Degenshein Architects, I was involved with municipal and institutional projects. After graduating with a Masters of Architecture in 2009 from Pratt Institute, I assisted in designing a second-place winning proposal for Art Basel, Miami 2010 and help produce a feasibility study for a non-profit hub in East New York, Brooklyn. At World Monuments Fund, a non-profit historic preservation organization, she spearheaded a social media campaign for the “2012 Watch”, an advocacy program for cultural sites in peril, and wrote about the organization’s successful conservation projects around the world. My professional and volunteer experience has culminated in a desire to continue to be involved in architectural and cultural conservation and offer design services locally and worldwide.
