Beginning with early childhood forts and Lego empires, Stephanie has had a lifetime love of form making that has guided her path to architecture. Originally from the Midwest, she used her years in school to explore the beautiful historic cities throughout Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, and the Mediterranean.

Currently, she is focused on her first non-Portland endeavor - the renovation of the beautiful, 120 year-old Denny Hall at University of Washington.
