Elizabeth Schultz is an energetic, self-motivated, and creative life adventurer. Growing up in southwest Missouri, Elizabeth daydreamed of dynamic cities, buildings rich in character, vibrant communities, and all things design.  Her curious and intuitive nature for understanding how places evolve and change over time took her into the study of architecture and community planning.

During her undergraduate and graduate study, she worked at three architecture firms in the United Kingdom, New York, and Washington DC, through the university’s cooperative education placement program.  During this time, she strengthened her interest and passion for designing large-scale sustainable development.

­Elizabeth’s project experience includes dozens of architectural and innovative planning projects spans the coasts and across the globe.  She greatly enjoys working across a variety of sectors, including education, health-care, mixed-use, multi-modal, research, residential, streetscape, transportation, and workplace.
