Fun Fact: I can’t sleep without a fan, can you?

RLPS Architects – Revit Technician


Tell us a bit about yourself:

I received my Associates of Applied Science in Architectural Technology from Thaddeus Stevens in 2015. I have since been working as an architectural draftsman for the local architecture firm RLPS Architects for about 5 years. I have even been lucky enough to work on some awesome jobs in downtown Lancaster. I traded in the Lancaster Country cornfields to currently live in Lancaster city with my boyfriend Ian. We frequent Buchanan dog park (we are the losers without a dog) and also local dive bars. I enjoy all things crafty and you may even find me throwing some ‘bows at a rock concert if you’re lucky.
