For the past two years, I have been the project architect for the new 65,000 s/f CUNY Lehman College Nursing Education, Research, and Practice Center (NERPC) in the Bronx. Despite many challenges related to the NERPC programming and site conditions, our team has developed an excellent design. This project has allowed me to fine-tune my skills in designing large-scale educational and healthcare facilities.

Every time I visit the campus, I am reminded how this building will influence the students’ lives and professional careers. These visits remind me why I wanted to be an architect: To improve the way people live day-to-day.
