Docent since 2019 | Arts District
In addition to an AD EX volunteer docent, I am a licensed architect and currently work in commercial real estate. I have lived and worked in Dallas since beginning my career as an architect. I have loved seeing the city grow and change. When not guiding tours or admiring architecture, I love biking, swimming, running with my husband, and spending time outside with our two dogs.

I love traveling and looking at architecture wherever I go. I became a docent to learn more about the city I live in and to meet others interested in architecture and design.
What’s your favorite tour memory to date?
My favorite memory to date is my first tour through the Texas Sculpture Garden at Hall Arts. It’s such a beautiful addition to the Dallas Arts District and a fun place to stop in the shade.
What’s your favorite building in Dallas/Fort-Worth and why?
My favorite building in DFW is the Nasher Sculpture Center. I find the layering of materials fascinating, and I appreciate the beautiful the attention to detail in the building and garden design.
What are the top 3 places a traveler interested in architecture and design shouldn’t miss in Dallas?
The Dallas Arts District, the AT&T Discovery District, and the Perot Museum – all three have been transformative projects for the City of Dallas that feature incredible design.
What’s your favorite city to visit besides Dallas? Why?
I love to visit Washington, D.C. There is so much history, art, and architecture. It’s easy to explore the city via the metro system. Not to mention, there is amazing food from all over the world.
What’s your favorite architecture book, film, or podcast?
The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. It’s a great combination of architecture, history, and true crime.
