I am a native of Virginia and grew up in Chesterfield, a suburb between Richmond and Petersburg. My mom always supported my dreams and, after I met an architect at a Girl Scout career fair, my mom helped me achieve that goal. I attended Howard University and worked in architecture firms in Virginia. When an opportunity became available to do work that was more community centered, I took it and moved to the left coast.
I was a Project Manager at the San Francisco Housing Development Corporation. My primary role was as client representative for an affordable condo project and predevelopment of new projects.
Outside of my work, I served as a Girl Scout troop leader, on the board of the Visitacion Valley Community Center, and as editor of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) magazine.
I am currently working on projects closer to home in Virginia and taking care of my family. I continue to study community development best practices, write, and develop real estate projects.
Buildings are important but building community is even more important.
