Associate

“My biggest drive is to help shape spaces that allow people to thrive while working, learning, and healing. I believe my role as a designer is to really listen to what users need, want, fear, and love, to frame our conversations to build our shared language and story. The joy comes from watching that story become their unique space where program, beauty, and budget complement each other.”

Claudia brings 13 years of interior design experience on a wide variety of project types including public works, educational facilities, life-science research facilities, student housing, and commercial workplaces. Her passions are as diverse as her experience and stem from a deep curiosity for how things work. From early planning through design, she is always searching for ways to openly engage clients and the team with the root goal of serving the people who will ultimately occupy and maintain the place. She offers a highly organized and critical approach to design thinking, constantly striving to create holistic environments – showcases of wellness, sustainability, and beauty.

Claudia received her Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from Arizona State University. She is NCIDQ Certified and is a member of the International Interior Design Association.
