Needs Information

Growing up in South Texas, Connie developed a love for the history of Texas through family trips across the state, which prompted her to study historic preservation as part of her architectural education.   Upon returning to Corpus Christi, she quickly became active in the community and involved in local organizations.  She later took on the part-time position of executive director for the local AIA, which allowed her to spend time with her son while remaining involved with the profession and the community.   She has used that experience to become an advocate for the profession and currently serves on the board of the Texas Society of Architects, as well as the Del Mar College Architecture and Drafting Technology Advisory Committee and the Equine Sharing Program, an organization dedicated to provide funding for equine assisted therapy for those with physical disabilities.

Connie brings to the client valuable working skills in project design, management of architectural and engineering projects, and service as an owner’s representative.  With almost 20 years of architectural experience, Connie has worked on various projects with responsibilities that include project management of new construction, historical restorations, and construction administration. Connie’s wide-range and varied experience in building design, construction and facility maintenance provides a unique perspective on critical analysis of the functional and constructability issues on every project in which she is involved.  One of her great strengths is acting as owner’s representative on large scale projects of all types and through every phase of design and construction.
