We invite you to welcome Alex to the team with us, by getting to know her a bit better.
A: I want to be involved in projects that make a difference in people’s lives and create change. Beyond that, to live in a van and travel!
Q: Where do you learn the most?
A: When I’m out of my own depth, and I have to think beyond what I would normally do, I’m forced to learn. Operating on instinct teaches you something about yourself.
Q: What makes a relationship with a client strong? What about with colleagues or partners?
A: With all interpersonal relationships, I think the ability to listen and build trust is key, and can help overcome other difficulties. Reaching out instead of waiting for the other person to do it, and not taking things personally, are also powerful.
A: Calm. Purposeful. Intrepid.
Q: What are some of your goals as a Bulfinch?
A: I want to be part of growing the presence and identity of our Phoenix office. As a young city eager to try and define itself and grow, Phoenix is full of exciting possibilities, and people who are willing to try something new. It now has an established and burgeoning design culture, and I look forward to continuing to be an integral part of that with Shepley Bulfinch, to help define it.
