I came to LMSA because of the firm’s commitment to sustainability and because much of the work is geared towards social justice.

Before coming here, I volunteered a few times with Habitat for Humanity, helping put up drywall and framing for a house. It really taught me the value of socially oriented design and seeing how grateful the residents were for the opportunity to have a house built for them—that really struck a chord.

I wanted to continue to give back to those in need and have a positive impact on our built environment. LMSA has always stood out as a firm committed to providing well designed and environmentally conscious buildings for people and groups that are less fortunate.
