Michaela graduated in 2018 from Syracuse University with a dual degree in Architecture and Geography, focusing on urban geographies. She spent two semesters studying abroad in London, UK and Florence, Italy, traveling and studying local architecture and urbanism extensively. Her architectural thesis was an analysis of Syracuse, NY’s Erie Blvd culminating in a transit hub and community space for refugees that was housed in an adaptive reuse of a big box store. At Syracuse she was the managing editor and co-founder of POSIT, a digital, curated publication by architecture students with the goal of starting conversations about design and architecture, as well as the previous president of the Architecture Student Organization and an active member of the AIAS. During the past summers Michaela has interned at a range of firms throughout the east coast, including Maryann Thompson Architects and LIONArchitecture in Cambridge, MA, the Boudreux Group in Columbia, SC, and Performative Praxis Lab in collaboration with Barton & Loguidice in Syracuse, NY.

A Cambridge native, Michaela has been working with SKA since May 2017 as a designer. She has a mastery of BIM software and provides technical expertise with refined and energetic spatial abilities to every project she works on.
