With an impressive academic background and diverse professional experience, Andrea has established herself as a driving force in the architectural industry.

Andrea earned her Diploma in Architecture from the prestigious Rice University in Houston, Texas, where she graduated with an outstanding 3.8/4.0 GPA in May 2021.

Her professional career took off with her role as an Architectural Designer at Thomas Phifer and Partners in New York, NY, where she worked on the Warsaw Museum of Modern Art project. Her ability to create detailed drawings and coordinate with multidisciplinary, international teams of consultants during museum construction has distinguished her as a leader in her field.
