All of the projects I’ve worked on have been tremendous learning experiences. It’s always so exciting to see a project grow from initial concept to a completed work. One of my favorite memories is from visiting Saratoga High School for their new music building. The students from the orchestra band played a couple of their pieces. It was incredible to hear them play, and so inspirational to remember them as we worked on the design for their future building.When I’m not in the office, you can find me cooking up a storm in the kitchen, painting, hiking, or playing board games with friends. I love exploring new areas, and am always on the look-out for the best taqueria. I am very passionate about my involvement with CASA, a mentoring organization for youth in the foster care system. I get the opportunity to spend time with a foster youth each week, being a dependable adult in her life, and advocating for her best interest at court hearings.
