Sarah is originally from Carmel, Indiana and currently lives in Broomfield, Colorado. Sarah holds her Bachelor’s in Architecture from Ball State University and Master’s in Architecture from the University of Kansas. She specializes in urban sketching and residential interior design.
Her teaching style is teaching students not what to think, but how to think. She states that guiding students to the right resource for the answers is easy in most cases. All you have to do is tell them a page number and cite a specific table, diagram, or drawing. Outside of a textbook there is a world of resources that need to become known to them – and that is where she comes in. Helping students think critically not only about how to deliver the appropriate content, but how to think resourcefully and access tools to help them along the way is crucial.
She enjoyed the final juried presentations from Sustainable Office Design. The students went above and beyond with the modeling, teamwork, presentation, and finish selections. Their work was exposed to industry professionals, family, and friends. It was pure joy!
In her spare time, Sarah loves urban sketching and to keep her creative expression sharp. Lastly, she enjoys traveling with her partner and reading murder mysteries on the beach.
