Architecture is the connection between the past, present and future. Knowing how to utilize this connection, and employ it for the benefit of others, is what makes this discipline critical.  As a recent graduate of Illinois Institute of Technology, I am working towards using my degree in architecture, and minor in history of architecture to begin transforming spaces for clients. I have a passion for historically beautiful places and things, which is what sparked my initial interest in my major. Outside of my studies I enjoy expressing myself artistically through dance, traveling and spending time with peers learning about different cultures and backgrounds.

Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something. I pride myself on being a “Big Sister” with the Big Brother Big Sister Foundation, helping change the lives of children in my community. My long term career goal is to help others enjoy, appreciate, admire and love their surroundings by renewing and bringing new life to already existing spaces.
