Prinicpal at Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects
What advice would you give to a young woman starting her career?
When you are the only woman in the room, sometimes it can be difficult to make yourself heard and recognized. Believe that your knowledge is essential to the conversation and jump right in. Thanks to our mothers and grandmothers, the days of women being excluded from the conversation are mostly behind us, so make yourself heard.
What accomplishments are you most proud of?
I’ve been able to work on some great Civic projects, like downtown Little Rock’s Robinson Auditorium and the new Arkansas Arts Center, which is currently under construction.
What is your secret to success?
Adaptation and perseverance. The only constant in life is change, so if something isn’t working, recognize it, address the problem and adapt.
