Marlene has nearly 20 years of experience in the industry, working on a diverse range of project types. Focusing on K-12 projects, she has partnered with several Oregon districts, including Oregon City, Beaverton, Woodburn, Portland, McMinnville, and St. Helens, to name a few. With a strong emphasis on community involvement, she volunteers extensively with students of all ages, fostering the next generation of architects and developing their passion for design. Throughout her career, Marlene has sought out challenging projects, including several that were “LEED for Schools.” As a second generation Oregonian, she is deeply committed to serving the broader community by encouraging innovation, ingenuity, and curiosity about the built environment.
