Principal Architect

Licensed Architect in Illinois / Registered Interior Designer in Illinois / NCARB and NCIDQ Certified / Master of Architecture, Washington University / Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies, University of Illinois

To me, EWP is: EWP is a highly knowledgeable and creative team that collaborates to solve our clients’ design problems. Every project is unique, and our group’s diverse skill set complements each other to create a well-thought-out solution that addresses the client’s priorities and needs.

My path to architecture and design: I have always had an aptitude for technical subjects like math and science plus an innate curiosity for how things work. After taking a few art classes, I discovered that I also have a creative side, particularly finding joy in photography. I knew that pursuing a solely creative or technical professional path wouldn’t fully satisfy me. Architecture is the perfect marriage of both.

My role at EWP: As a Principal Architect, I see projects through from start to finish. Working with clients to understand their needs, devising thoughtful solutions, drafting the necessary planning documents, and working with the contractor until the design is realized are just some of my responsibilities. I draw on over 25 years of experience to be an effective and productive leader of our team.

Outside of EWP: I am a wife and mother to two boys. When I’m not cheering from the sidelines at soccer games, you can find me watching karate and guitar classes. Photography remains a passion of mine and I’m also an avid reader.
