Tell us a little about yourself!
"As an architect at Quackenbush Architects and Planners and a native of Columbia, I have had the very special opportunity to design buildings and spaces for a city and community that helped raise me. Since I was in first grade, I knew I wanted to be an architect or work in a field that would allow me to be creative. I am fortunate to have been mentored by wonderful architects and designers since my first summer job right after high school. At Quackenbush Architects, I am surrounded by the best.
I am currently an active member of both the American Institute of Architects, serving as communications director for the South Carolina Chapter, and the Junior League of Columbia, serving as a vice chair for the “Done in a Day” Project Committee. When not at the office, on construction sites or volunteering in my community, my husband, Kirk, and I stay busy with our very active 16-month-old son."
What is your favorite quote?

Who is your most influential mentor?
"Two that have impacted me significantly in my professional career are Doug Quackenbush and Barb Haller. They have taught me so much about the profession of architecture, including the importance of beautiful, functional design and how through collaboration with our clients we can create buildings and spaces that positively impact how people live, work and play.
And of course, my parents, who have been my mentors long before I knew I needed mentoring. They are a huge source of encouragement in all aspects of life, work and relationships. They have taught me to dream and to go after those dreams with all I have - and most importantly, to be nice to people along the way!"
