Getting to the core of “why” is important to Maria. She is drawn to an evidence-based design approach and to creating environments that intuitively support the lives of the end users. Maria recently discovered the art of weaving. She loves the exploration of color and texture that’s found in weaving, noting it’s a beautiful balance of design and mechanics of the process. Outside of work, Maria balances her time with long-distancing running, Crossfit, hiking/dispersed camping and small animal rescue. She also optimizes her official “rent and return” policy with her various nieces and nephews.
