Her portfolio spans a wide range of building types across athletics, science, higher education, and healthcare.
Maria developed a passion and expertise for designing buildings that shape and interact with their surroundings while managing landscape and urban design projects for the City of New York Parks & Recreation Department. A generalist at heart, she enjoys seeing a project through, from programming and concept to construction and turnover.
