Julie’s pragmatic approach to projects is paired with a deep empathetic leadership style. She is a knowledgeable mentor and a careful steward of LMN’s culture, providing leadership on a diversity of projects, and within the practice, in sustainable design knowledge, approach, and application. Julie earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture from the University of Colorado and joined LMN in 2003.
Julie is motivated by how architecture as a practice can help create a sense of belonging and enrich civic life. She believes architecture is as much a social process of designing and building with a group of people as it is about program, composition, and form. A leader in the performing arts and education market sectors, Julie spearheads some of the firm’s most prominent projects, including Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, Field Arts & Events Hall at the Port Angeles Waterfront Center, Octave 9: Raisbeck Music Center, Lee Center for the Arts at Seattle University, Bill & Melinda Gates Center for Computer Science & Engineering at University of Washington, and Triton Pavilion at University of California, San Diego.
