Position Project Manager Chapter: University of Virginia
Sites: Charlottesville, VA 2014 - 2016
DESCRIPTION The University of Virginia architecture school offered the opportunity for students to pursue community service where design can be applied to practical, real-world projects for the surrounding Charlottesville, VA region. My first two years at UVA I was a part of the program at an assistant laborer position and was elected into project manager for my last two years in the program. My roles and responsibilities were to meet and acquire clients while providing design and management leadership for the projects. I taught lessons of basic construction such as plumb concrete footer pouring, proper and safe operation of woodshop machinery, ADA slope grading and paver placement, and load requirements for small foot bridges based on lumber properties.
This opportunity allowed me to receive design and hands-on experience in a college setting that gave back to the community which has propelled me since in the field of architecture.
