Meet the Team: Holly Gomez

Three-and-a-half years ago, Holly Gomez joined the WBA team as Project Manager. She’s motivated by the work ethic of the staff that surrounds her and the commitment to problem solving on behalf of clients. When she’s not at work, you’ll find Holly spending time outdoors with her husband and three children or, if she gets a few minutes alone, drawing with a sketch book.

What inspired you to become an architect?

As a child, I grew up making things. My mom was an art teacher, so there were always projects in the works at our house. She encouraged us to be creative and convinced us that we could do anything. There was no line between creating and playing. Architecture has been a continuation of that experience.

What has been one of the most out-of-the-box projects you’ve worked on?

Several years ago, I designed and built a dog house for a local fundraiser. It was a small project, but we were able to use materials in a non-traditional way for a great cause.

What would be your dream project?

Designing a large scale interactive sculpture that blurs the line between art and architecture would be fun and challenging. I like the idea of working on a project that becomes part of the existing landscape and engages the public on a personal level.
