Architectural Design Career

After graduation, Lyza found work with an architectural company after the successful completion of her practicum. She praised the company for fostering collaboration by bringing her own creative eye to several design projects.

Eventually, Lyza hopes to one day give back to the local community by designing affordable housing spaces.
