What are you currently doing and what path led you to where you are today?
I became interested in architecture observing the work of my previous husband, an architect. Through his influence, I was able to design several homes for a residential construction firm. I loved it so much that, in 1976, I incorporated my own company. I am still president of Handcrafted Homes, Inc., a national award-winning firm that specializes in renovations and new construction.

(Handcrafted Homes, Inc.—A Residential Design, Build and Renovate firm is located in Atlanta, Ga.

What has a women’s college and a liberal arts education meant to you?
Everything! It gave me the confidence to believe that there is not just one path for me. I feel that I can attempt almost anything and succeed.

Tell us about a memorable Agnes Scott experience.
I remember our class’s first Black Cat experience when we secretly met to learn our Peter Pan song. I remember the feeling of bonding and knowing that these women would be my lifetime friends. That has proven to be true.

What advice do you have for an ASC student?
I see this century as one of constant evolution. Therefore, I believe that an Agnes Scott student should be able to adapt quickly to changes in the job market. If possible, she should get an introduction to several fields of interest and not just her major. This will allow her to gain confidence in her ability to handle opportunities and challenges that may develop in her future.
