Why did you join AIA Seattle?
To connect with colleagues and contribute to my profession and community.
What is the value of AIA to you?
AIA has been a key forum for meeting other colleagues and learning from my peers, as well as connecting with other architects nationally.
What relationships have you created?
I have been very fortunate to have met and become active with many other members from across the country, especially in my work with the Women’s Leadership Summit series.
How do you want AIA Seattle to impact our city?
I want AIA Seattle to continue to raise the profile of architects and design in the greater community, as well as promoting sustainable building practices.
What interested you about being on the AIA Seattle Board of Directors?
Through my work with Women in Design I have met many of the current and past board members and I have been inspired by their drive to serve their profession and community. I hope to follow in their footsteps, learn more about my community, and to serve the AIA Seattle membership.
What project are you working on now?
I am currently the project manager for the Sound Transit Roosevelt Rail Station. I am also serving as the Co-Chair for the upcoming National AIA Women’s Leadership Summit happening in Seattle this September.
