Lezlie is inspired to learn something new every day. It’s not surprising, then, that she changed her career midstream.
After 13 years in mechanical engineering technology, Lezlie switched gears to pursue a master’s degree in architecture. She’s putting that architecture-engineering mix together to lead a new service line for property condition assessments based in Northern California. Her 22-person multidisciplinary team has worked on projects like the 501 J Street property in downtown Sacramento. After that assessment, the client purchased the property and is converting it into a medical office building, designed by Stantec.
Lezlie completed a Master’s in Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment, a distinctive program offered jointly by the engineering and architecture departments at the University of Cambridge. Her thesis was titled “Aspects of Collaboration in Multidisciplinary Building Design and Construction Teams.”
Away from the office, Lezlie enjoys exploring new places. As a relatively recent transplant to California, she is discovering the state’s mountains and beaches, along with its big cities and small towns.
