Jefferson City, MO, US



My name is Rachel Gardner and I graduated with my master in architecture from Kansas State University’s College of Architecture, Planning and Design May 12, 2012. I am seeking first professional employment and am willing to relocate for the benefit of employment. My current career goals are to find work alongside a licensed architect as my mentor for the Intern Development Program. I am especially interested in health care architecture as well as projects that benefit individuals, society, and the ecological well-being of the planet. I am highly scientific-minded and enjoy the technical details that help a project come together successfully.
