I have spent the last nine years at a firm that exposed me to a lot of different project types and sizes. From coffee kiosks, to multifamily housing, to office remodels, to large scale shopping centers. Moving forward, I would like to be more involved in the front end design phase of projects, and continue getting more proficient at CA organization and tasks. In my education, PSU gave me a wide range of experiences through the rich curriculum, as well as through my involvement with the AIAS. I also gained a lot of experience through my years in the military, and in working in avionics after receiving my Associates degree in Washington. As student IDP Coordinator the last two years at PSU, this position required knowledge of IDP, NAAB, NCARB, Paths to Licensure, and the ARE exam process. My current goals include finding a new position with local architectural firm, and gaining as much experience as possible and finish my path to licensure. My journey has driven me to become very interested in the areas of Adaptive Reuse, Socially Responsible Architecture, and the role of the Architect in the psychology and science of building communities, and city planning.
