BA, Art, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI
M-Arch, University Of Illinois, Chicago, IL
Why did you go into AEC industry?
I am a licensed Architect and worked in that capacity until 2009. I was fortunate to have been involved with proposal preparation, Interviews and most of all client relationships and development at my past firms. I was able to shift that experience into a Business Development role and have thoroughly enjoyed the transition.
Little Known Fact
I always had a passion for art and architecture, especially after spending my junior year of college in Florence. I was, however, horrible in math and absolutely detested the subject. After graduating from college, I became determined to get a Master’s degree in Architecture. In order to do well on the GRE and succeed in the program, I spent a year learning the entire math curriculum that I had not taken in college. I not only did well enough on the GRE to get in to an excellent M-Arch program, I received straight A’s in structures throughout the program!
