Christie believes communication is one of the most important aspects of any business, especially architecture. She is passionate about designing in urban areas because of all of the constraints and requirements - she sees these as not problems but design opportunities. Christie has worked on both the architectural side as well as the construction side, which has strengthened her design skills and project management abilities. Christie has worked on corporate office designs, industrial buildings, government projects, higher education and healthcare facilities.
on a personal note...
Christie was the only student in her high school graduation class that was in both AP Calculus and Advanced Art – as a result she realized that architecture was the perfect fit for her. In her free time, she designs and makes useful products, mostly out of recycled materials. A few years back she collected printer tubes from a local company and made chairs out of the tubes.
