Why did you join NOMA?
I joined NOMA as an architecture student to experience and promote diversity in the field of design and construction. As a design professional my interest expanded from membership to leadership and mentorship, and I'm committed to seeing a profession that reflects our diverse society. Throughout the years, I have attended several NOMA conferences and have gained a greater insight and appreciation for the organization and its mission to promote the profession.
