About Mary

I graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle. I have over 27 years of experience in the healthcare architecture/design industry. I have over 35 years of experience using AutoCAD software (starting with Release 9 in 1982). I use AutoCAD on a daily basis in my A/E firm. I have served as CADD 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 a day-to-day basis include MS PowerPoint (for project interviews, presentations, and design charettes), MS Word, MS Excel, MS Office Project, Navis Works for clash detection, BlueBeam for marking up drawings and coordinating with other disciplines, and Revit for Architecture.

Policy: 2-hour minimum per student / per tutoring session - no exceptions. I work full-time, so request a courtesy 24-hour advanced scheduling notice, as well as 24-hour cancellation notice, from the student.

Thank you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

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.

AutoCAD

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.

Voice (Music)

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.
