Holt, MI, US



I am a recent graduate seeking my first full-time employment in the architecture field. I am self-motivated and very ambitious. I plan on acquiring my Masters in Architecture and Masters in Urban Design in the next 7 years. Ultimately my goal is to become licensed and LEED accredited which will eventually lead to my own design firm. 

I have always been a leader whether I am in the classroom, on the soccer field, or in the heat of battle during a paintball outing. I am not afraid to voice my opinion, help someone without them asking, or take charge of a group who seems lost. However, I am also capable of letting others lead. I enjoy working in a group mentality where everyone has the ability to be heard and make suggestions toward a solution.
