Her most notable project at GFF was the Perot Museum of Nature and Science where she worked in Los Angeles, CA with design firm Morphosis on the design and construction documents. Following her return to Dallas, she worked as the architect’s liaison on the construction site of the museum with the contractor while the building was under construction. She managed multiple consultants and oversaw quality control of construction. Her time on the museum has garnered her experience with a complex, fast-track project using Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) methods and Building Information Modeling (BIM).
