Why The Hayes Design Group? What keeps you here and motivated?
I joined The Hayes Design Group because of the unique vision of service that I saw in the owner, Kevin Hayes. We had both gone to Notre Dame and participated in many of the same service activities, although we had graduated more than 20 years apart. I appreciate the firm’s commitment to its clients, and I have genuinely grown in friendship with my fellow employees.

What is your favorite aspect of practicing architecture?
I most enjoy working with people. I enjoy learning about the various needs of clients. I had a wonderful client experience with a Native American tribe in Fairbanks, Alaska called the Tanana Chiefs Conference. It was wonderful to design a facility for them within the context of their very unique and beautiful culture.

Your favorite building design/example of architecture in the world?
The Pantheon in Rome, and also African grass-thatch mud huts
