Having grown up in a family of builders and craftspeople, Andrea has always known that you can impact people’s lives with the things you build – and derive a deep sense of joy through the process of creating something. Over a career that’s spanned more than twenty years, Andrea has specialized in K-12 school design for at least fifteen of them. She is particularly skilled at managing client relationships to grow Perkins Eastman’s K-12 practice, and building consensus among clients, stakeholders and project-team members to keep projects on time and on budget.
Andrea was the 15th person to join the firm’s DC studio. She’s grown steadily along with it as the studio expanded from a small space in Arlington, VA, to its large two-story office in downtown Washington. She is now a leader both for the DC studio and the firmwide K-12 practice area.
Our Perkins Eastman
With a gift for relating to people and understanding their goals and desires, Andrea has always aimed to make Perkins Eastman a better place to work. She’s also served on several important firm committees such as the Women’s Leadership Initiative and the Futures Council, a group of young leaders charged with strategizing Perkins Eastman’s long-term success.
