Aesthetics as well as budgets are of equal importance to every project I undertake. My goal is to turn your vision into a reality that exceeds your expectations.
Born and raised in the New Orleans area my fascination with architecture and historic preservation began at an early age. New Orleans is truly blessed with an abundance of National Register Historic Districts and architectural styles. Inspiration is all around us. New Orleans is experiencing a renaissance brought on by new construction, new businesses and civic improvements in all parts of the city. This is an exciting time to be an Architect.
After earning my professional degree from Louisiana State University in 1995, I returned to New Orleans to begin my career with a firm specializing in tenant build-out for Class A office buildings. I spent the greater part of my career with a design-build firm working on large commercial projects such as theme parks, airplane hangars, office buildings, The Headquarters of Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans and a well known chain of fine restaurants. During my tenure there, I had the pleasure of consulting on multi-family housing for the Department of Defense with the designer of Seaside, world renowned Urban Planner Andres Duany and his team from Duany-Plater Zyberk & Company. I have been licensed to practice architecture in the state of Louisiana since 2002. I am proud to live and work in the Lakeview neighborhood of New Orleans with my husband and children.
