How did you become interested in this field?
I started as a temporary employee at another architectural/engineering firm in 1984 and became full time there after three months. It was at that firm that I first met and worked with Jim Dennell until he left to become a partner at another firm. In 1991, Jim invited me to join his firm, and I have been here ever since. I continue to find my job interesting and enjoyable.
What was your favorite place you have traveled and why?
My favorite place to travel is anywhere with my husband, Larry. We particularly enjoy the mountains; one of our favorite places is the Black Hills of South Dakota.
