As the daughter of a third generation architect and homebuilder, Lydia developed an interest in architecture at an early age. That interest transformed into a passion and then a profession. Lydia’s appreciation for thoughtful, practical design led her to the University of Cincinnati where she graduated summa cum laude in 2014. As part of the UC co-op program, Lydia had the privilege of interning in Cleveland, Ohio, Washington, D.C., and finally in Bluffton, South Carolina where she fell in love with the Lowcountry. She returned after graduation and quickly rose up the ranks to manage a full residential design team specializing in all aspects of residential design—from model and builder homes, to high-end custom residences. Lydia currently serves as the President Elect for the Hilton Head Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
