It wasn’t until Julie’s sister moved out of their bedroom that she realized you can change a space to suit your taste. She developed an interest in how buildings are experienced and says that the most rewarding part about being an architect is when she and her client can share a vision and find mutual appreciation for the form of a structure.
Julie began her career in facilities planning at Kansas State University before joining SDG, where she has remained a dedicated team member for nearly 20 years. Julie has experience in a variety of project types including commercial offices, retail, facilities management, K-12 Education and health care facilities.
As Building Information Management (BIM) Manager she is involved in software research and implementation for the office. A believer in the importance of continuing education, she has attended ACA and Revit conferences over the years to increase SDG's understanding of and proficiency in the software we use.
In her spare time, Julie has been doing home renovations for quite some time and would not recommend it to anyone.
Ideas are welcome and encouraged and we work as a team – both staff and clients. I’ve also appreciated that SDG is supportive of staff’s families.
I don’t really have a favorite. All projects have their “fun side” and their challenging aspects. That’s what makes them interesting.
