Penn State University

Are you still in school? Are you working and if so, in what field?
Following graduation from Penn State’s five-year Bachelor of Architecture program, I moved to Greenwich, Connecticut to work for a prominent classically-inspired residential design firm. After gaining architectural licensure, I pursued a Master of Science in Real Estate Development at Columbia University and joined the acquisitions and development team for a local real estate investor and apartment operator.

What did winning the EAP scholarship mean to you?
Being recognized for hard work and determination fueled my passion for studying architecture and helped to ensure I didn’t have to worry about the financial burden of higher education. Knowing that the Electrical Association of Philadelphia respected these values was encouraging.

How has winning the EAP scholarship helped you achieve your goals?
With the assistance of the Electrical Association of Philadelphia, attending Penn State allowed me to pursue my passion for architecture and urban design and that has led to a successful start to a career that excites me more and more every day.
