Amy loves what she does – because she knows the built environment has an emotional impact on a person. She sensed it first hand during a high school field trip, realizing architecture can enhance how well a child learns or how quickly a person heals. Fast forward a few years and Amy has built an impressive career as an architect specializing in healthcare. She’s also developed a strong voice regarding diversity in the profession, advocating for women architects on both the local and national level. She passionately believes in helping others through architecture and in architecture, embracing her responsibility to design supportive and healing spaces while promoting equity within the profession. A mother of two, Amy spends her rare spare time publishing a blog about balancing career and family.
