This is all happening so fast. Once again, I have the pleasant task of celebrating our newest colleague, Sarah Page. Sarah joins Workshop Architecture as a recently licensed architect with four years of experience. As you'll see, she's bringing a lot of professional value and enthusiasm to Workshop, and we couldn't be more excited to have her on our team.
Sarah grew up in Chattanooga and went to Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. She graduated in 2012, with a dual degree in architecture and French, and minors in art history and global studies. After graduating, she decided to wait out the end of the recession in Paris, France, where she worked as an au pair. While living abroad, she took every opportunity to travel across Europe and Africa exploring her favorite passions: history, design, and food.
Upon her return to the states in 2013, Sarah started her career in architecture with gusto. Within a year, she was not only employed at a Chattanooga firm, but was pursuing her architectural license AND serving on both the local and state American Institute of Architects (AIA) boards of directors, where her main focus has been advocacy and professional development for young designers. During her time with the state chapter of AIA, Sarah started a program to recognize firms across the state that excel in developing the professional and leadership skills of their young staff. She also currently runs a program in Chattanooga to help young designers achieve their license. And with Extended Studio, AIA Chattanooga’s young design professionals group, Sarah organizes volunteer opportunities for design and construction in Chattanooga, including an annual partnership project with the local STEM school. Currently, she serves as the Vice President of AIA Chattanooga and is the Associate Representative on the AIA Tennessee Board of Directors.
Sarah remains a travel junkie, spending most of her vacations exploring new cities or hiking in the back country. When not planning her next travel adventure, Sarah splits the rest of her time between tennis, soccer, rock climbing, yoga, sketching, and cooking.
