After completing undergrad at the University of Virginia, Amelia headed south to Clemson for her MArch before venturing down to San Antonio. She is interested in how architecture reacts to context, formulating a response to existing physical and social conditions in a way that strengthens place and people.
This interest was born out of her experience while part of a small group of students from that worked closely with a small coal town in Virginia that had lost two-thirds of their downtown to a flood management project. While the teen center they designed was stalled by politics, it taught Amelia how essential trust, proactive communication with stakeholders and team management are to the success of any project, built or unbuilt.
Amelia also serves as the co-chair of The Art Program at Overland.
During her free time, Amelia is an avid wanderer and loves discovering new places whether it be in a different country or her own neighborhood. She also enjoys reading, cooking and spending time outside.
