I graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle. I have over 24 years of experience in the healthcare architecture/design industry. I have over 27 years of experience using AutoCAD software (starting with Release 9 in 1982). I have my own current license of AutoCAD 2013 (as well as Revit 2013). I am proficient with AutoCAD 2013 and tutor private clients on AutoCAD 2013. I have served as CAD Director, as well as assisted other CAD Managers with AutoCAD and Revit setup for previous firms. I've used AutoCAD 2D/3D during design charettes for all projects, client presentations and design meetings for complex, heavy commercial, healthcare and hospital projects. Other software I use on day-to-day basis include, MS PowerPoint (for project interviews, presentations, and design charettes), MS Word, MS Excel, MS Office Project, and Revit for Architecture.
I received my BArch from the University of Washington in Seattle in 1990, studying under Professor Emeritus, Francis D.K. Ching, whose textbooks are still required reading in architecture schools across the country. For my first heavy commercial project one year out of school, I was the space planner of record for a new molecular biology research facility in Southern California and the project received AIA's Gold Medal of Honor for Space Planning, the highest honor awarded by the American Institute of Architects. I've worked on major healthcare projects with reknowned architects such as Robert Venturi, and have written two published healthcare design articles which are available for reading online. I am EDAC certified to practice healthcare design by The Center For Health Design, and I've worked for major nationally and internationally recognized healthcare firms - HDR, KMD, Lee Burkhart Liu, CollinsWoerman, Clark/Kjos, Mills John & Rigdon as a Senior Project Manager, Senior Medical Planner, and CAD Director.
I have worked as CAD Director for multiple firms and have trained employees 'on the fly' on multi-million and multi-billion dollar healthcare projects. I have been an independent contractor, providing AutoCAD support to firms and private clients for over 24 years (from AutoCAD Release 9 through the current version of AutoCAD Release 2013), and customizing their AutoCAD software for their employees to better understand and utilize the software to its full potential. My work using AutoCAD (and Revit) is heavy commercial work and I currently work with AutoCAD 2013 on a day-to-day basis with a nationally recognized healthcare firm in Seattle.
I took voice lessons in college for 2 years with renowned vocal coach, Jeff Francis. I competed vocal for talent in multiple local Miss America pageants - Miss Seattle, Miss Kent and Miss Federal Way - winning top 3 in all 3 pageants in the talent competition. I competed vocal for talent at Miss Washington (preliminary to Miss USAsia), winning vocal and eventually winning the title of Miss USAsia 1990 in Houston, Texas, an international title. I'm hired to sing at weddings and have performed at different events to raise money for charity. I am a current mentor for Miss Seafair 2009 and Miss Seafair 2013, both winning vocalists.
Extensive Experience in AutoCad — Mary is very knowledgeable in AutoCad and had a great style for delivering her knowledge and intuition. My reason for four stars instead of five was her not really knowing the Mac based AutoCad as well as the PC based program. I specifically asked for someone with Mac knowledge and we had to spend some time together going through the program trying to figure out how some things were done. Though ...
