I completed both of my undergraduate degrees at the University of Cincinnati (UC) in the fields of architecture and architectural engineering with a structural focus. I am currently working toward a master’s degree in civil engineering, also at UC. As a project engineer at THP, I have gained experience in the design of new steel, concrete, and wood structures, plus the restoration of masonry and concrete structures. I began my career at THP in 2017, working out of the Cleveland office, focused on building envelope restoration. I relocated to Cincinnati in 2019 with a greater focus on new design. Over the past several years, I have worked mostly in the healthcare industry on steel and concrete additions to hospitals in Ohio, Indiana, and Northern Kentucky and doing garage restoration in South Florida. I split my time between design in the office and site work in the field.
My passion for design in architecture and engineering started when I was 10 years old. I saw a documentary about Maya Lin’s work and have spent every year since then working toward becoming the best designer I can be. While in high school, I spent some time volunteering in New Orleans doing construction as part of Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. I spent two summers while I was in college volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in Greater Columbus, and with them helped build more than a dozen homes for local families. The hands-on construction experiences I have had were an invaluable part of my education.
I grew up in Worthington, Ohio, a large suburb of Columbus, but have lived in the Cincinnati area on and off for more than a decade. I currently reside on the east side with my mackerel tabby, Minerva. In my free time, I enjoy watching baseball, attending Broadway plays and musicals, kayaking, playing the oboe, and learning new languages (six now and still counting).
