As a passionate Graduate Architect and Project Manager in a small town I am looking to expand my career and experience in a bigger city with a firm that offers a wider range of design opportunities.

My experience in my current position has given me the opportunity to learn the basics of working in a firm and how to put a building together.  I coordinate and work on all the commercial projects that pass through our office, it is my responsibility to make sure drawings are finished on time and designs meet local and state codes.  I collaborate with our architect and outside engineers to make sure a project is at it’s best. I am responsible for conceptual design, design development, construction documents including detail drawings, project presentation including conducting client meetings, preparing renderings, creating graphic layouts, etc. and 3D modeling as well as general project management.  My current position has also allowed me to work towards licensure by qualifying my time for IDP hours. 

My 2 years of working experience paired with my 6 years of education has given me a strong architectural background and a robust work ethic so that I can confidently communicate designs verbally and graphically.  I have the knowledge to put together a set of working drawings and with my past small firm experience I am able to improvise and problem solve. My experience has also allowed me to become a hardworking, self-motivated, dependable, trustworthy employee who is always eager to expand my knowledge base.  I’m outgoing and enjoy working with others to maximize the potential of any project for the client.
