I want to be a part of something that I believe in. I want to be a part of the architecture that stimulates peoples brains, inspires people, the moment they walk in they don't understand why, they just feel good. Architecture is subconscious and immediate and I want to be a part of the Architecture that subconsciously makes people better.

My designs are driven by embodiment, empathy, philosophy, music, law, policy, mathematics and writing following the Education of the Architect as described by Vitruvius. We design human habitat which influences human habit.



Page Southerland Page, Austin, TX, US, Architectural Designer

I appreciate the work-life balance at Page as well as the support in order to pursue licensure. Here I was supporting in CD’s for a 20 story tower next to our soccer stadium. After expressing my interest in residential, I was placed on a team currently in SD for a multifamily project. I appreciate the open communication between designers and principals as well as the variety of information I learn on a daily basis at Page.

Breckstudio Architecture, Austin, TX, US, Architectural Designer

The emphasis was on the process of the team. I loved working in a high-end residential studio. The smaller team (6 total) allowed for me to take leadership over a $4mil house and $1.5mil athletic court. We established design principles as a team and all agreed on the overall direction. As I led these projects, I was put in charge of bringing the teams vision to fruition via drawings and client presentations. I loved the direct communication with the client. I believe high-end residential is an excellent way to embody a client in order to create a space for their needs with the studio’s high standard and developing expertise.

HOK, Tampa, FL, Architectural Student Intern

At HOK, I was quickly put on a team and was one of three women on this team. We worked on a project for a cruise line, working on the construction phase on the project. This was heavily Revit oriented for hard deadlines and revision with quick turn arounds. I also executed renderings on other projects.

Corgan, Dallas, TX, US, Architectural Student Intern

Here I was able to learn how an architectural team works. With an established hierarchy, I learned to be an asset as an intern by making myself available to whatever team needed assistance. Our focus was primarily Data Centers, and Revit was preferred.

Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, US, MArch, Architecture

I received a beautiful education. With a rigor I didn't know my body was fully capable of to a philosophy that I didn't know my brain had the capacity for. We worked extremely iteratively challenge our emotional connection to design and ego and shifting the importance to what is best for the project. We learned to meet our curiosity with expertise, for every question to explore, there were methods and answers to respect, in order to bring new creations to fruition. I read many philosophies on the relationship between neuroscience and architecture, we did new, quick half-scale models every week, our buildings didn't have to be absolutely perfect structurally, but they had to show integrity, they had to make sense. My studio professors and seminars changed my life, I will carry it with me forever.
