Getting Started

I started working for my father’s residential construction company at the age of 11 and knew by the age of 14 that I wanted to be an architect. I loved construction and along with a knack for drawing, I was drawn towards the architectural profession. After working on Bio-tech/Pharma design for 7 years, I longed for a return to traditional architecture where I would work on different types of projects. William Starck Architects offered that along with a “family” atmosphere. I have been working with the firm since March of 2013.

Favorite Projects

I love all aspects of my career. Not only do I work on a variety of projects from private clients (i.e. restaurants, car dealerships, etc.) to municipal clients (i.e. schools, libraries, fire stations, municipal buildings) but I also have been able to develop my business development skills. Some of my favorite projects were the Westall School and Route 6 Kia.

Interests

I am family- and community-oriented with a sense of responsibility to give back to the cities and communities we live in. Outside of work, I enjoy participating in local politics and community service projects.
