Linda believes that collaborative design can enhance the formation of design ideas into reality. Her experience working with multi-disciplinary teams, first as a landscape designer to working in environmental planning then architecture, has broadened her understanding of design collaboration and that it can have positive, compound influence. She is currently a designer with Hoopes and Associates Architects in Santa Fe, NM. Her past work in Seattle, WA includes commercial, institutional and public projects which have been the foundation for her architectural design experience.
Daisy Dominguez is an educator and classroom designer in Santa Fe. Her interests are in curating learning environments that inspire curiosity and deep learning for young children. Her interests in the socio-emotional development of children, inquiry-based explorations, and the environment in the role of identity development, merged while she was a lead educator for early learners of natural history at Sibley Nature Center. She has led educational programs for children in Texas, Colorado, California, and New Mexico. Daisy received her M.A. from the University of San Francisco in International and Multicultural Education, which focused on understanding formal and informal education within sociocultural, linguistic and political contexts around the world. She also received a B.A. from Texas Tech University in Environment and Humanities, which focused on studying the relationship between environment and human culture.
Annette believes we can simultaneously design for better outcomes, higher ROI, stronger communities, and happier humans. Fascinated by neuroscience and behavioral economics, she consistently searches for the incentives that shape human actions. She finds her purpose in furthering the passion and purpose of others. Annette's design radiates clarity. She gracefully balances form and function, budget and timeframe, end-user needs and her client's desires. Happily transplanted to Santa Fe 17 years ago, Annette draws her highly developed sense of aesthetic and attention to detail from her Asian roots. She was schooled and professionally trained by top designers in Seattle, WA. She has been immersed in communication arts for over 27 years, starting with her middle school newspaper layout editor role. Annette developed her empathic listening and productive questioning skills during her time at St. John's College, Santa Fe. Her analytical and creative mind allows her to offer delightful and versatile solutions. On her freetime, she channels her love and creativity in her meal preparation for her family of six and friends.
