What is something that would surprise people to know about you?
I moved around a lot growing up. I have lived in three national capitals (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Dublin, Ireland; Washington, D.C.) and have dual citizenship (USA and Ireland).
What is your favorite way to give back?
I enjoy mentoring students about my profession. I am a mentor in the ACE Mentoring Program for high school kids in the Des Moines area and have so much fun designing hypothetical buildings with them.
