As leader of the Higher Education Studio in the Detroit office, Tricia excels at leveraging strong internal and external relationships, and is adept at managing project team activities and client expectations. "It is a privilege to create places that are focused on the future and inspire learning." Tricia cultivates strategy while applying human-centered design for a wide range of higher education projects including the Health Sciences, Professional Education, STEM and Student Life. Looking back to her childhood, Tricia has always had a hand in architecture and design. "Growing up with two older brothers, we had our share of Legos," recalls Trish. "Together, we designed entire cities and harbors. I still keep Legos nearby as a reminder of my creative introduction to architecture." Favorite pastimes include "planning vacations to anyplace with palm trees" and—no surprise here—gathering around a table with her son, building with Legos.
