I am a current young professional in Atlanta embarking upon my journey within the architectural world. I defended for my Master of Architecture this past May at Virginia Tech after earning my B.ARCH in 2011. 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.
