Graduate from Marywood University with my Bachelor's Degree in Architecture. I am passionate, motivated, and extremely hard working. I am willing to learn and to grow in the professional field.


W2A Design Group, Allentown, PA, US, Architectural Designer

Two years of experience has given me more knowledge coming right out of school. I worked directly with the lead architects on projects from initial schematic design through to construction. I have experience with surveying, providing design input, meeting with clients/providing detailed reports, 3D modeling/rendering, construction drawings, consultant/contractor meetings, and even working with architectural specs/submittal process. I have worked on a wide range of tasks while employed here and worked on a variety of projects which include; residential, commercial, mixed use, renovations/additions, factory/manufacturing, and governmental. Northampton County Forensic Center was the biggest project I worked on while employed here. Along side the team from W2A Design Group, this project was what I spent the majority of my time working on. This project was completed in October 2020.

Target, Dickson City, PA, US, Sales Floor Team Member

My main priority is the guest. I do everything I can to make the best experience possible. I also help reorganize the store to make the best first impression for the guest. This position helped me interact with people and to sell the product. It also helped me understand the spatial configurations of retail environments. This position also shows that I work at places for a long time and that I am dedicated to that job.

Rite Aid, Northampton, PA, US, Front End Associate

This job gave me my first real experience with interacting with people. I learned how to engage individuals and make them trust me as a person. It helped me intertwine my personal and professional life in a way where I can be relatable. I would also help keep the store clean and presentable for customers. This position also again shows that I am dedicated to a place because I worked there for six years.

Marywood University, Scranton, PA, US, BArch, Architecture

I started out in my second year at Marywood out of a five year program. I learned schematic design, construction documents, 3-D modeling systems, structural systems, mechanical systems, building codes, project estimations, final drawings, and etc. I acquired a variety of skills from my four years at Marywood.

ISI Florence International Studies Institute, Florence, IT, Study Abroad

I took two architectural electives, Italian, and studio while out there. I learned a lot and got to experience more architecture and culture than most people do in a lifetime. It truly was an experience that changed the way I see everything in life, especially architecture.

Aug 2016 - Dec 2016

Northampton Community College, Bethlehem, PA, US, Architecture

I started my education at this community college. I acquired an Associate's Degree in Applied Science of Architecture. This school helped give me a solid starting foundation for forming my design process. I began learning 3-D modeling, hand drawings, architectural history, construction process, structural systems, presentation layouts, public speaking, group collaboration, and etc. I believe this school gave me the foundation for my own design abilities.

Community Design Award, Award

In my last year at Northampton Community College, our senior project was to design in Nazareth Pa. We were given different projects throughout the community that needed to be redone or built. I got an urban infill project and I was to redesign a YMCA and Commercial/Residential Building. I was also in charge of creating a parking garage as well. Each team was then awarded through the town and school a Community Design award.
