AIA, LEED-AP, Certificate in Historic Preservation
After traveling across four continents, working through three and studying in two, Alison earned her Masters in Architecture from the University of Colorado, Denver, and became a licensed architect shortly after. Alison has effectively managed projects from pre-design through construction management for multiple clients ranging from small renovations to large new construction master planning. In addition to residential architecture, she has gained considerable experience in commercial work, including community centers, schools, hospitals, federal office spaces, airports, laboratories, and the National Park Services. These jobs have provided her with an ideal training ground for leading coordinated efforts of large consultant teams in high-stress situations, collaborating with contractors within truncated schedules and budgets, broadening her knowledge base of standard and green construction methods and architectural practices.
Most recently, Alison applied her architecture and business skill set to the conception and profitable growth of Socio Design Foundation, a venue for international design competitions that strives to foster a dialog on architecture's sociological impact.

Anne earned her undergraduate degree in business from the University of Notre Dame. She worked for Deloitte Consulting and honed her business skills as an IT systems analyst and consultant in Chicago. After several years in the consulting world, she changed direction and pursued a more creative career in architecture.

She earned her Masters in Architecture with a certificate in Design-Build from the University of Colorado. Participating in the acclaimed GHOST X, design-build workshop, with MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple in Nova Scotia, she combined her love of traveling with architecture. The satisfying combination was also achieved while studying in Rome with her masters program and previously studying and traveling around the world on Semester at Sea during her undergraduate education.
Anne worked for many years in a small Denver Architectural firm excelling in both residential and commercial architecture. Anne is experienced in all architectural phases: pre-design to construction administration of both commercial and residential projects. Her participation on commercial projects ranges from the Ritz Carlton-Denver to a Westminster park shelter and the Arapahoe County Offices.
