Most of Callah’s experience has been working on additions and renovations to K-12 school buildings and urban facade renovations. She feels a great responsibility for sustainability in Architectural Design and thinks it’s important for to help clients choose sustainable strategies that work with their budget and have the greatest impact on their sustainability goals. She also loves learning about the software that is used for our work and enjoys creating graphics to clearly represent the design decisions being made.

During COVID, most of Callah’s spare time was spent knitting sweaters and creating prints and illustrations for friends and family. Before the pandemic, she could be found searching the city for great cocktails and food and attending concerts of her favorite bands. She also enjoy hiking in the summers, downhill skiing in the winters, and petting all the dogs all year round.
