“I chose a career in architecture because I love designing and I enjoy working with people. The field of architecture takes my best traits and allows me to use them to create great places for our clients. I believe that if you are in a beautiful environment it will affect how you feel, work, live! And I love that change for the better is something I get to do every day!”
