I am a current graduate student at Virginia Tech planning to defend for my Master of Architecture this May 2017. I originally ventured to VT to earn my B.ARCH in 2011 and loved it so much that I stuck around. Go Hokies.

I originally hail from Kankakee, IL, a river town south of Chicago. I will always be a midwest girl at heart who loves her Cubbies and gets teased about her accent. As a child, I used to play with nuts, bolts, and scrap wood while my dad did carpentry projects. My fascination with building began there and it's been a ride ever since.

My unsolicited view on architecture is that good design is about people. I believe in working towards a citizen architecture founded in meaningful placemaking.
