In 1998, I enrolled in the University of Kentucky College of Architecture, completing my Bachelor of Architecture in 2003. While working as an intern in Louisville, Kentucky, I joined the Central Kentucky Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. I completed my initial registration process in 2013, becoming licensed to practice architecture in the state of Kentucky. Throughout my career journey, I have developed my design skills through work experience on a variety of project types, from residential to institutional. I have developed leadership skills, connected with mentors, and fostered strong professional relationships through involvement with the AIA, my Alma Mater, and service on the City of Louisville’s Historic Preservation Advisory Task Force. I currently hold a Project Architect position with WA Architects, Inc. serving locations in Cincinnati Ohio, and St. Louis, Missouri.
