My journey into architecture and the AEC industry began at the tender age of four, building my basketball hoop — I was too impatient to wait for my dad, and that drive, initiative, and sense of pride to get things built still fuels me today. My cousin introduced me to sketching and drawing at eight years old, and I immediately fell in love with the arts. Strangely enough, an exit plan at the Saint Louis Art Museum opened my eyes to building plans and the world of architecture. These early childhood events lead to me setting my sights on becoming an architect and attending Kansas State University.
In 2018, we moved to Atlanta, and my architectural experiences changed. I worked for THA Consulting (Park Smart Certified) as a parking consultant and for HKS as a construction administrator. The past four years allowed me to obtain experiences in commercial mixed-use, hospitality, healthcare, and parking structures – from conceptualization through construction.
Now, I’ve transitioned to opening a new office for Galloway & Company. A full-service design AE firm with offices in Colorado, Utah, California, Kansas, and now Georgia. This unique opportunity is demanding, challenging, and rewarding, allowing me to enhance my professional and personal development.
