She shared one of her most memorable learning experiences with BD+C: “At my first internship after graduate school, I was seated across from several experienced architects’ workstations who often engaged directly with clients. In school, there aren’t really classes about how to talk to clients. It was incredibly valuable to sit adjacent to them all summer long to listen to their presentations, learn the vocabulary, and see their demeanor when talking with clients. Originally, I felt a little guilty for eavesdropping, but I knew the lessons would stick with me and help my career.”
