Michele is an Architectural Designer in Philadelphia, PA. Eight years ago, she moved to Philadelphia to attend Drexel University’s 2+4 Architecture Program. Through the 2+4 Program, Michele was able to find employment at a variety of firms, enabling her to sample different office sizes, project types, workflows, and establish a network while still in school. In 2018 she joined Stantec in their Philadelphia office, working on healthcare projects in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Michele enjoys the challenges within healthcare design, but its focus on the end-users is what excites her.
The foundation of her interest in architecture is the impact that the built environment can have on people and their wellbeing. As her career has developed, Michele is finding a passion for exposing more communities to architecture, thus diversifying the next generation of designers and working to progress the industry socially. Outside of Michele’s professional pursuits and studying for the AREs, she loves to walk and bike around Philadelphia and support its excellent food and music scenes.
