Originally from Upstate New York, and educated at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Paula moved to Connecticut in 1994, and began her career in residential architecture. While she enjoyed the design process of these small scale projects, Paula was looking to expand her capabilities and relocated to San Jose, California where she gained valuable experience at a large scale in Silicon Valley.
In 2000, Paula returned to Connecticut and joined TLBA, impressed by the high standards of design and craftsmanship; and looking forward to a studio-based design approach. Paula’s primary focus at TLBA has been in Science + Technology and Higher Ed Facilities, where she consistently meets the challenge of meeting the pragmatic requirements of laboratory design, educational or administration spaces, while always finding the unexpected design solution and creative opportunity that improves the work environment for those involved in these communities.
In recognition of Paula’s significant contributions to TLBA and their clients, Paula was named an Associate of the Firm in 2010.
