Facts about Rebecca:

  • Where were you born and raised? Norwich, CT

  • What are some places you’ve visited? I love to travel. I love to see amazing places in nature and unique architectural cities. I have been to many places in Europe and have gone to a number of the national parks in the country.

  •  What attracted you to architecture? When I was looked at colleges I had no idea what I wanted to do. I had been in the fine arts program in high school and was talented at mathematics. I found out about architecture online and went for it and by the end of the first semester was a leader in my class. I knew I had made the right decision.

  •  What are some of the jobs you have held? Aside from architecture positions every job I have held has had to do with swimming. I was a swim instructor, a lifeguard, and a swim coach.

  •  What is your greatest accomplishment? I have always said becoming captain of my college swim team in a senior class of ten women. Becoming a licensed architect at 27, five years before the average, may just top it.

  •  What are you most passionate about? Athletics have always been a huge part of my life. They promote teamwork and a healthy lifestyle. I have done a number of organized sports through the years and continue to train for half marathons and play in community sports leagues.

  •  What are your lifelong dreams? A simple life is fine by me. I would love to enjoy a career as an architect who does interior design as well. When I retire I want to develop my skills in oil painting and perhaps write a fictional novel.

  •  What is your favorite food? Ice cream, followed closely by loaded cheeseburgers.
