I started working for Aedis over five years ago as an entry-level designer, and through the guidance, mentorship and encouragement of my co-workers and the Aedis values and culture, I am now a Project Manager. My love for working at Aedis is two-fold. I appreciate our culture in the office – constantly seeking to learn and grow as an organization and as designers. I also love that we are passionate about positively impacting the communities and schools that we work on. I’ve seen this first hand as I’ve worked on a masterplan and then watched it unfold and transform San Benito High School in Hollister, CA. We’ve updated classrooms, built an expansive Career Technical Education building and are currently in construction of a new Track and Field and Aquatics complex to name just a few of the projects. I’m also a new mom, so any time that I’m not in the office, I’m hanging out with my almost one-year-old and discovering the world anew alongside of him and my husband. We love adventuring outside and making food. That means we spend a lot of Saturday afternoons hanging at the park on the swings, and Sundays after church with friends over good food.
