Roxanna leads SGPA’s Education Studio with a keen eye for detail and organization. With over 17 years of experience in Higher Education work, she is familiar with the ever-changing demands of educational facilities which come hand in hand with building consensus within complex client organizations and working with challenging agency approval processes. As a skilled community facilitator, Roxanna brings people together to collaboratively solve design challenges whether her skills are needed on a high-paced renovation project, or a large, new design-build facility.
Roxanna’s passion shows through when she has the opportunity to shape how the built environment will affect the mental, physical, and social health of clients and users. She pays special attention to the needs of both to creatively apply limited resources and navigate logistical obstacles with positive results. She also consistently challenges her team to bring sustainable design solutions tailored to each client’s goals and budget.
